Software or Wetware to Blame in Rose Acre Case?

"During the past couple of years, we’ve seen dozens of OSC settlement agreements with employers who went “too far” in their quest to comply with I-9 verification obligations.  In most if not all such cases, the employer made a habit of requesting specific (or additional) documentation from a specific class of workers –as documented by employee manuals, trainings, and interviews with I-9 preparers . In the Rose Acre case, however, we have an entirely different “motivator” (if you will) which appears to have brought this case to light.  And ironically, it’s the least human element of all – the company’s electronic I-9 software." – John Fay, July 2, 2012.
