Topic ID: WEB00142
Employers are required under Federal immigration law to verify the identity and employment eligibility of new employees by reviewing acceptable documents provided by the employee and then completing an Employment Eligibility Verification form, commonly known as Form I-9.
This webinar will help employers understand how to comply with the Form I-9 process, avoid fines for non-compliance, and understand key requirements to aid in efforts to maintain compliance.
Why Should You Attend:
Your company has been notified by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that it will be the subject of a random I-9 audit.
- Are you prepared?
- Have you conducted self-audits on a regular basis?
- Do you feel confident you have an I-9 completed for all your employees and that they are completed properly?
Federal immigration law requiring companies to keep a Form I-9 for all employees has become a critical and timely issue as many businesses across the country are finding themselves subject to inspections from the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, or the Department of Labor. Failure to meet immigration legal obligations can cause your company to be the subject of steep fines and could also result in criminal and civil liability.
The information provided during this webinar will help employers overcome Form I-9 related challenges, learn how to perform self-audits, and understand key requirements to aid in efforts in maintaining compliance.
- Mastering Form I-9 completion, storage, and retention protocols
- Evaluating documentation, spotting missing or inaccurate information, and legally correcting errors when performing a self-audit
