Description

COURSE OVERVIEW:

Are you confident that your organization is in full compliance with Federal immigration laws, or are you at risk of being assessed costly fines, or worse, for potential violations?

It is a violation of Federal immigration law for any employer to knowingly hire employees who are not authorized to work in the United States. The Federal Form I-9: Employment Eligibility Verification, is used by employers as a record of their basis for determining eligibility of an employee to work in the U.S. The form is maintained by the employer and made available upon request for inspection by officials of the DHS, The DoL, and the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration Related Unfair Employment Practices.

The ability for employers to virtually review I9 supporting documentation ended on July 31, 2023. Additionally, a new I9 form was issued on August 1, 2023. Starting November 1, 2023 employers can only use Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, with the 08/01/2023 edition date.

In this informative 90-minute webinar, you’ll be provided with the information you need to ensure your organization is Form I-9 compliant, understand what constitutes proper documentation, recordkeeping best practices, and methods for conducting self-audits. You will also learn about the E-Verify process which can assist employers with good-faith immigration compliance. Additionally, participation in this webinar will provide you with insight into surviving an external audit best practices to avoid hefty fines and enforcement actions from ICE.

Due to this increased focus, more employers are conducting proactive self-audits of their I-9s and supporting documentation. Additionally, more employers are participating in the Federal E-Verify program, a web-based system that allows business to electronically confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.
