ICE Updates No-Match Letter Rules
Ramification for Employers
In keeping with the ongoing trend for tougher workplace enforcements, the new final rule issued by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) concerning the “No-Match” will be a test for employers who are employing legal immigrants in US. The regulation lays down new safe-harbor time frames for employers to act on a No-Match Letter.

In the face of growing concerns regarding visa fraud, the new rule regarding No-Match Letter, which goes into effect sometime in September 2007, will make it tougher for the law breakers by laying the burden of responsibility on the Employer.
