The purpose of this audit is to determine whether the employer hires employees in conformance with statutory requirements – particularly with regard to discrimination issues, privacy issues, and drug testing. Once the employee is hired, we review whether the employer has properly completed I-9s and other required forms; whether the employer has provided the new employee with required information and has had the employee complete and sign appropriate documents; and generally if the employer has engaged in other activities to ensure that the new employee will become familiar with the surroundings, the culture of the workplace, and requirements of the new job.
