Following an investigation and audit of Form I-9 documents by Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), 17 Massachusetts employers were fined a total of $349,619.54 in fiscal year 2012 for employment violations. The inspection of the employers' documents is part of HSI's worksite enforcement strategy that launched in 2009 to reduce the demand for illegal employment and protect employment opportunities for the nation's lawful workforce.


Fines in Massachusetts in FY 2012 of over $1500 include:


Northern Pelagic Group LLC (NORPEL) - $151,200;


Amex Inc. - $70,000;


Samar Company Inc.  - $33,786.22;


Quality Workforce Inc. of - $26,881.25;


Metropolitan Linen Services Corp. - $13,635.19;


Bread & Company Inc. of - $9,804;


Cap Seafood Inc. - $9,804;


Leechen Restaurant Inc. - $9,441.63;


Ocean Crest Seafoods - $9,000;


Panda House Inc. - $4,675;


Jae's Spice - $3,000;


Fruitlands Restaurant, Inc., aka Sorrento's Pizza - $2,805; and


Pier Fish Company Inc. - $2,200;


During FY 2012, HSI conducted 35 inspections of employers' I-9 documents in Massachusetts. In
previous years, the HSI fines and inspections in Massachusetts were: FY 2011: 30 inspections  and $175,420.25 in fines for worksite violations against 11 companies; FY 2010: 20 inspections and $67,440 fines for worksite violations against three companies; and FY 2009: 17 inspections and $9,753 fines for worksite violations against one company.
