Abstract:

This PDF document was made available from www.rand.org as a public service of the RAND Corporation. 

The Treasury Executive Office for Asset Forfeiture (TEOAF) asked the RAND Corporation to develop an economic model that can be used by federal law enforcement officials as a tool for determining appropriate amounts of forfeiture, or payment in lieu of forfeiture, in certain cases where firms knowingly employ undocumented workers. This report presents the economic model and the analysis used to develop the model. It also documents the decision-support tool developed to implement the model.
