United States Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) made significant changes to the “Handbook for Employers: Guidance Completing Form I-9.” Form I-9 itself was updated on October 21, 2019. Now, Immigration enforcement is on the rise. With increased funding and driven by public outcry, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, is on the audit trail, ready to levy big fines for employers not in compliance.
The Form I-9 Employment Verification Form appears simple, yet the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued a 65-page handbook explaining how employers should go about executing it. Unsuspecting employers are often surprised to learn that failure to execute an I-9 properly can lead to steep fines, penalties, and even criminal liability. This live webinar provides no-nonsense, practical training on what every employer must do to meet the federal government's requirements for employment verification.
Form I-9 compliance goes beyond just filling out the form. It requires that every business have Form I-9 policies and procedures in place that cover items such as why I-9 Compliance is important How to execute an I-9 properly How to maintain, store, and destroy I-9 records.
In order for a business to be compliant with Form I-9 federal regulations, that business must have in place written policies and procedures that address a variety of issues that relate to Form I-9 compliance.
This training session covers these issues in detail and provides the information and practice tips you need to implement I-9 policies and procedures that will put your business in the best position possible to defend an audit of your I-9s by ICE.
The U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) is going all-out in its "bold new audit initiative" to crack down on employers who violate immigration laws. Administrative I-9 audits are ICE's tool of choice.
Too often, company execs and HR managers assume their I-9 compliance practices are in order when, in fact, their records and policies are littered with mistakes, leaving the business and individuals open to fines, lawsuits, and jail time. Are you sure that your I-9 practices can pass muster?
It can be difficult to keep up with all of the most current information concerning immigration regulations, including the most recent employment verification rules and I-9 form changes. Violating federal law and risking huge repercussions for yourself and your organization is not an option. You need to ensure your organization is correctly filling out the I-9 form for each employee, collecting proper documentation, and complying with recordkeeping best practices.
