Organizations across the country are suffering the consequences of innocent mistakes made regarding employment verification and other immigration laws. Are you confident that your clients are in full compliance with federal immigration laws, or are at risk of being assessed costly fines — or worse — for potential violations? 

Businesses across all industries and of all sizes are at risk.  More than ever before, the courts are penalizing organizations for failing to comply with complex and ever-changing immigration regulations.  It can be difficult to keep up with all of the most current information concerning the most recent employment verification rules and I-9 form changes. Violating federal law and risking huge repercussions for your clients is not an option.

In this informative two-hour program, you will get the information you need to ensure your clients are correctly filling out the I-9 form for each employee, collecting proper documentation and complying with recordkeeping best practices, as well as updates on policies due to COVID and tips on offering I-9 Audits to clients.  Some questions we will address are:

  • Who is required to fill out an I-9?
  • How can you properly correct erroneous or missing data on an I-9?
  • What is the timeframe in which forms must be completed
  • What mistakes are often made that violate the I-9's anti-discrimination provision?
  • Is photocopying an employee's verification documents allowed?
  • Are employers allowed to help a new hire fill out Section 1 of the I-9?
  • What steps should be taken if an employee cannot present adequate I-9 documentation?
  • What is the E-Verify program and should I be using it?

If you are unsure of even a single answer to these questions, you are putting your clients at risk. Enroll today for this training course hosted by both immigration and employment law attorneys to gain essential information about today's ever-changing laws and best-practices and the issues on which you need to focus to ensure legal compliance. Find out how these laws impact the way your clients do business and develop a system that helps them stay out of legal trouble.
