77 California businesses asked for workers' documents

February 2, 2018

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents served the notices Monday through Wednesday to businesses in Sacramento, San Jose and San Francisco.

A notice of inspection asks business owners to produce so-called I-9 forms, which employees are required to fill when first hired to confirm they are legally authorized to work.

The audits come two weeks after California Attorney General Xavier Becerra warned business owners they could face fines of up to $10,000 if they violate a new state law that bars them from turning over workers' records to federal authorities.
