I-9s for 2016: Uncover Critical Rules for HR's Completion, Retention, & Re-verification
|Date / Time:
I-9 recordkeeping may not be the most glamorous part of your job, but it is essential. And things can get tricky really fast because the compliance devil lies in the details.
For instance, how would you answer the following questions?
Are you sure your answers are correct? You need to be.
- If the SSN entered into E-Verify is incorrect, what steps should we take?
- An employee just moved to our state and his driver’s license says it is not valid for federal ID purposes. Can we accept the license as a List B document?
- We have remote hires and we don’t have a company office in their area. Can we look at the documents via Skype or FaceTime? If someone completes the I-9 for us remotely and I see errors when I get the I-9, can I make the corrections?
- If an employee, who is a U.S. citizen, has been terminated and rehired after 3 months do we have to re-verify?
Government enforcement of immigration rules has been on the rise for the past five years and will continue. With increased funding and public outcry for reform, ICE is on the move and ready to levy big fines for employers not in compliance, to the tune of several million dollars.
Immigration reform efforts, the fate of undocumented or unauthorized workers, ICE enforcement efforts, and raids for I-9 violations continue to be a hot topic that employers need to watch. Now is the perfect time to take a hard look at your I-9 recordkeeping practices and the latest developments to ensure that you’re on the right track for the year.
Join us and our presenters, both seasoned immigration attorneys, will teach you how to get your records and practices up-to-date now so you can stay in compliance, stay out of court, and avoid hefty fines.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
