ABERCROMBIE & FITCH FINED OVER $1 MILLION AFTER I-9 AUDIT

Rate this Entry

A & F was fined one of the largest amounts ever against an employer in the state of Michigan as a result of problems discovered with the company's I-9 forms. The well known apparel retailer operates 26 stores in Michigan under the Abercrombie & Fitch as well as the Hollister labels. Apparently, something was not working properly with the company's I-9 software product, though the specifics were not spelled out by ICE in its press release and A & F hasn't been talking to the media.


This seems to be an extremely harsh punishment especially since the company is only accused of paperwork violations and not actually hiring illegally present workers. Also, the fact that the firm was using electronic I-9 software is really a shock since these products generally help companies avoid fines and not cause them.

    Meg Whitman employed an undocumented worker. I saw some of her ads during the primary for building a fence , What a disgusting character she is.

    F, I don't know what kind of conversations you may have with those bare chested men, but undocumented immigrants come in different shapes and sizes. In fact, Canada is pretty high there among countries supplying the US with undocumented immigrants, and since immigrants tend to skew younger and male, I would not be surprised if many would fit pretty well with all the bare chested young men at Abercrombie. The same goes to many potential DREAM Act beneficiaries. Just saying that your comment smells a bit like statements by AZ governor on how to identify undocumented immigrants.

    Asian Americans sued them for racism a few years ago!

    You can smell whatever you wanted to . I am also aware of the fact that A & F was sued for hiring only certain kind of people to "fit" their "image".
