Your chances of facing an I-9 audit have shot up dramatically. Are your I-9 Forms and immigration practices up to the challenge? Do you know how to deal with ICE? Are you aware of the fines that can be assessed?
Last year, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) conducted its highest number of I-9 audits ever — a 375% increase from 2008. It's all part of the Obama administration's "bold new audit initiative" to find and punish employers that violate immigration laws and fail to properly complete I-9s.
Newest development: ICE has established an Employment Compliance Inspection Center to expedite Form I-9 audits, allowing ICE agents to audit EVEN MORE businesses.
The result: Greater risk for your company, your executives … and you!
Understanding these issues will be vital for your HR compliance in 2012 and beyond. That's why we're presenting Immigration Compliance Update 2012: I-9s, E-Verify, Crackdowns and the 'Obama Effect.'
This eye-opening interactive webinar on July 26 will be hosted by two nationally prominent immigration experts, David Selden and Julie Pace, who you may have seen on CNN discussing immigration law in Arizona and nationwide. They have handled hundreds of I-9 audits and enforcement actions.
What you'll learn:

Most common mistakes to avoid in completing I-9s — plus, you'll get a printable I-9/E-Verify compliance flow chart to help you in the hiring process.
The top 10 strategies for employer I-9 and immigration compliance.

Plus, you'll have the opportunity to ask these experts about your own I-9, E-Verify or immigration issues.
