Are you confident your organization is in full compliance with Federal immigration laws, or are you at risk for being assessed costly fines, or worse, for potential violations?
In an effort to control illegal immigration, in 1986 Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA). The IRCA was enacted to legalize approximately three million undocumented immigrants, while at the same time, attempted to deter future undocumented immigration. In order to be in compliance with IRCA’s directives, all U.S. employers must complete a Form I-9 for each employee hired after November 6, 1986.
It is a violation of Federal immigration law for any employer to knowingly hire employees who are not authorized to work in the United States. The Federal Form I-9:Employment Eligibility Verification is used by employers as a record of their basis for determining the eligibility of an employee to work in the U.S. The form is maintained by the employer and made available upon request for inspection by officials of the Department of Homeland Security, The Department of Labor, and the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices.

Why You Should Attend:
Completing a Form I-9 in a compliant manner involves navigating through numerous gray areas of the law and interpreting some often-conflicting and confusing instructions. What appears to be a simple form carries the potential for six-figure liability if completed incorrectly.
As United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) inspections of Forms I-9 have become more frequent, fines have become more prevalent and costly. Additionally, E-Verify rules are being enforced by both the Federal government and States. It’s imperative that employers focus on compliance with Form I-9 regulations and the proper use of E-Verify.
This webinar will provide participants with detailed information on how to complete Form I-9 and gain an understanding of E-Verify requirements. Participants will also learn how employers can step up their efforts in ensuring immigration compliance.
