Employee verification steps of the past are no longer enough to prevent this from happening. The documentation being used is as real as yours or mine.

From Then to Now, Our New Path Forward

Upon closing of the Department of Labor filing, here are the key changes made to our compliance program:

Hiring Requirements

Our decisions are guided by what's right for our customers, employees, and the communities we serve. This independence allows us to provide flexible solutions that evolve with changing customer needs.

Age Verification

All potential hires must be 25 years of age or older.

This policy helps us minimize the risk of inadvertently hiring underage workers.

Internal Hiring Process

Fraud detection and ID training for all hiring managers.

Equipping hiring managers with fraud detection skills ensures secure and trustworthy recruitment processes.

Vetting Process

Our holistic approach blends cutting edge technology, insightful interviews, and meticulous document scrutiny.

We leave no stone unturned in ensuring the authenticity of every employee, building a foundation you can count on.

3rd Party AI Tools

Partnering with for age-related verification.

We analyze age-related data to identify discrepancies between a candidate's provided information and their verified background.

Our Compliance Office plays a critical role in overseeing our adherence to laws and regulations.

  • Conducting detailed interviews with a connect the dots process for flagged applicants.
  • Regularly updating our compliance procedures and training programs.
  • Acting as a point of contact for compliance-related inquiries and concerns.

Statement from Deason Law

"We had already been conducting I-9 audits for Fayette Industrial since November of 2022 for various plants, but when Fayette requested the firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of all their employees and hiring processes, I was caught off guard. In my twenty years of working in the field of I-9 compliance, I have never had a company voluntarily elect to conduct such a large-scale audit without prompting from a customer or federal authorities," said Dax Deason, managing shareholder of Deason Law, P.C., a firm specializing in immigration and corporate I-9 compliance.

"We are currently in the midst of auditing the I-9 forms and hiring records of approximately 2000 employees at all of Fayette's locations, conducting staff training, and updating policies. It is more than clear to me that Fayette is serious about making every effort to comply with the immigration and labor laws and continuously improve their hiring programs."
