I-9s For 2016: Key Recordkeeping Tips For Completion, Retention, And Re-verification
|Date / Time:
The current version of Form I-9 expired on March 31, 2016, but USCIS has instructed employers to continue using it until a new revision is approved. USCIS has also proposed changes to the I-9 process that are meant to streamline it and reduce errors.
Good news, right? The bad news is that many employers still don’t have a good handle on the current I-9 process, and confusion, and mistakes are rampant.
Given that you need an I-9 for every single employee on your books, these mistakes can be very costly, especially with government enforcement on the rise. Now, while the process is being reviewed and updated, is the perfect time for employers to master I-9 compliance once and for all (and get all those nagging questions answered).
Join us for an informative webinar, when Jacob Muklewicz and Elaine Young, both seasoned immigration attorneys, will teach you how to get your I-9 records and practices up to date so you can stay in compliance, stay out of court, and avoid hefty fines.

- If the SSN entered into E-Verify is incorrect, what steps should you take?

- Can you accept a temporary green card? What if it’s about to expire?

|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.
