Bruce will discuss the massive increase in ICE enforcement, through I-9 Inspections, the doubling of ICE penalties to a maximum of $2292 per I-9 form violation, the return of ICE raids, how to be prepared for an ICE I-9 audit, and what happens in an ICE inspection of a company's I-9 forms.
Employers must be prepared for ICE inspections and IER investigations by conducting regular internal I-9 audits, correcting errors on I-9 forms, and drafting an effective Immigration Compliance Policy for your organization.
Why you should Attend
In this 60-minute webinar, immigration attorney Bruce Buchanan, the co-author of I-9 and E-Verify Handbook, will discuss why employers must be aware of the heightened scrutiny they face in immigration compliance. If employers are complacent, they become more vulnerable to penalties assessed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Thus, employers need to be proactive and conduct internal I-9 audits, correct mistakes on the I-9 forms, and draft an immigration compliance policy. If not, your company could be next ICE target costing you $50,000 or more in penalties and loss of many employees.
