I-9 Compliance Workshop: The New Rules & Best Practices Of Employee Verification
"We can audit any company, anywhere, of any size.” – ICE Special Agent Brad Bench
ALERT: Your organization's odds of being targeted for an audit of your I-9 forms have skyrocketed in just the past few years. Plus, the feds have released a brand-new version of the I-9 form with new requirements.
What's new on the revised I-9 form? And are you next in line for an audit? Learn how to get in compliance with the advice from a true insider—a former ICE assistant chief counsel.
The U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) is going all-out in its "bold new audit initiative” to crack down on employers who violate immigration laws. Administrative I-9 audits are ICE's tool of choice.
Total fines handed out by ICE are now 13 times higher than in 2009. Plus, ICE has made a big effort to publicly emphasize its criminal investigations of employers that hire undocumented workers. In just one year, ICE arrested 238 corporate executives, managers and even HR professionals.
Strict compliance with the often-confusing I-9 rules is your only defense against serious monetary penalties and criminal arrests.
Too often, company execs and HR managers assume their I-9 compliance practices are in order when, in fact, their records and policies are littered with mistakes, leaving the business and individuals open to fines, lawsuits, and jail time. Are you sure that your I-9 practices can pass muster?
Register now for our timely webinar, I-9 Compliance Workshop. You'll be learning from a true immigration law expert and Washington insider. Attorney Kevin Lashus is a former assistant chief counsel at the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Specifically, you will learn:
The penalties are severe for I-9 violations, and the government is no longer negotiating fines of pennies on the dollar. Fines for "substantive" violations can reach $16,000 for each occurrence.
