Conn. companies fined for unlawful employees

Twelve Connecticut employers have been fined for hiring unlawful employees after an investigation and audit of I-9 forms by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

Four of the 12 companies fined are located in Fairfield County.

I-9 forms are required for every employee at a company and forces an employer to record and review an employee’s identity and employment eligibility documents.

The investigation is apart of a strategy launched in 2009 to reduce illegal employment and protect job opportunities for legal workers.

Last year one Connecticut technology company in Bloomfield was fined $15,000. This year, the 12 companies will split the fine of more than $132,000 in total.
