I-9 & E-Verify:
New Rules, New Form, New Procedures

Understand your role in I-9 document review

In this 75-minute interactive online training, you will learn how to:

  • Confidently review and assess employee documents for fraud and alteration

  • Properly verify and store I-9 forms and records

  • Use remote verification under the new rules if eligible

Getting I-9 verification right is serious business — and there’s a brand-new form to fill out.

Employers are expected to follow the law and only hire individuals legally permitted to work in the United States. And while the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) allowed some flexibility during the COVID-19 pandemic, that flexibility has now been tightened. No longer can most employers remotely verify work authorization via email or video interviews with new employees — unless they meet specific conditions. We’re back to in-person document review unless you’re an E-Verify participant in good standing — and then only if you’re hiring entirely remote workers. 

Consider the potential consequences for missing a fraudulent document and letting a new hire who isn’t legally authorized to work slip through. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has made no secret of their plan to increase both I-9 audits and workplace raids when it suspects employers are turning a blind eye to obviously altered or fake identification. Plus, employers risk arrest and prosecution for ignoring document fraud that allows unauthorized or underage individuals to start work. Simply put, ICE expects employers to be on the front line in the war against unauthorized workers as record numbers of economic migrants arrive. 

In this fast-moving webinar, get up-to-date on everything I-9, including how to fill out the new version, what to do now that virtual hires have been reverified or if you didn’t meet the deadline and how to spot faked, altered or otherwise fraudulent documents when new employees try to game the system.
