I-9s for 2016: Uncover Critical Rules for HR's Completion, Retention, & Re-verification

About This Course:
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?
  • 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?
Are you sure your answers are correct? You need to be.

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.
