Foods Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer Ken Kimbro and ICE Director
John Morton signed the IMAGE or “ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers,”
agreement during a ceremony at ICE headquarters. Tyson Foods, Inc., which employs
almost 100,000 people at locations throughout the United States, is the first major
food company to become a full member of ICE’s IMAGE program.
today’s signing ceremony, Director Morton also announced the creation of an employment
compliance inspection center in Crystal City, Va. This center will be home to 15 auditors
who will support ICE’s worksite enforcement strategy by helping agency field offices
around the country expedite Form I-9 audits of businesses selected for inspection
by ICE. Form I-9 audits are one of the most powerful tools the federal government
has to ensure that businesses are complying with U.S. employment laws. From fiscal
year 2009 to date, ICE has initiated Form I-9 inspections against 3,769 businesses
across the nation.
