What It Is: Archived I-9 Comply converts and audits legacy paper Form I-9s to electronic format and audits the documents using a 20-tier, 185-point system that highlights errors for easy review and follow-up. The auditing criteria were developed in collaboration with the law firm of Clark Hill, and nowHIRE claims its algorithms achieve 99.5-percent accuracy in detecting documentation deficiencies. Pricing is based on volume, with a cost of $4.25 per archived Form I-9.
Why We Like It: With U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement aggressively auditing -- and fining -- companies for violating work-eligibility rules, this automated tool may let HR leaders breathe a sigh of relief. These days, organizations are usually vigilant about making sure new hires are permitted to work in the United States, but this tool tackles the potential Form I-9 problems that are buried in company files. We also like the easy-to-read summary overviews as well as the individual remediation recommendations that simply state both the problem and solution.
