Immigration laws and Form I-9 requirements are not on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Correctly completing a Form I-9, that seemingly simple form involves sifting through gray areas and often conflicting instructions that can prove to be a trap for the unwary, and often most well-intentioned employers. Even seemingly minor “paperwork” violations can land employers in hot water for non-compliance.
Attending this webinar will help you understand how to correctly fill out the I-9, and if you have made any mistakes up until now, how to correct them. You will also learn of new developments and some best practices, which should save your company from steep penalties arising out of avoidable violations.

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.
