What are the Impacts of a Missing W11?

What are the potential impacts for me and for my former employer with a missing IRS W11 form?
Last year I did a small stint of work at a large corp. through a placement firm. My check came from the placement firm, I worked onsite at the large corp. Pretty standard W2 consulting.
I was recently contacted by the placement firm saying they forgot to get me to sign a W11 form and need me to send one over right away.
What sorts of ramifications would not having this form have on them? What ramifications would not getting the form to them have on me?
It looks like the form is for the HIRE act. As I was employed prior to working with them, they wouldn't legally be able to claim a tax credit for me anyway, so it seems like a internal bureaucracy decision. However, I'm curious as to the particulars here.
(Yes, I know, don't be a dick. Yes, I know not filling out the form probably means they'll never place me anywhere again. I just want to be informed before I sign a piece of paper that's being shoved at me)
