Homeland Security Is at the Reception Desk: Increased Worksite Enforcement

Oregon Business

Dustin O’Quinn authored an article in Oregon Business magazine’s April issue titled “Homeland Security Is at the Reception Desk: Increased Worksite Enforcement.” The article discusses the recent uptick of immigration-related worksite enforcement and the various scenarios where the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) may make an unannounced visit to a company.

Recent presidential executive orders instruct DHS to increase enforcement activities. Therefore, a higher number of site visits, raids and audits are expected in 2017. Companies should focus on heightened compliance by ensuring documentation is properly completed, filed, retained and reviewed.
