Register now for our timely webinar, I-9 Compliance Workshop. You'll be learning from a true immigration law expert and Washington insider. Attorney Kevin Lashus is a former assistant chief counsel at the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Specifically, you will learn:
- I-9 101. Discover 10 essential steps to correctly fill out the revised version of the I-9
- Documents. Which documents you can review for Lists A, B and C – and what has changed
- Copying. Whether you should make copies of driver's licenses and other supporting documents
- Review. How far you are required to go to determine if a document is "genuine"
- Retention. Where you must store I-9s and how long you must retain them
- Disposal. The proper way to discard I-9s
- Reverification. How to handle reverification in the most legally safe and efficient way possible
- Internal audits. What can be corrected and who should be auditing
- Best practices. What else you should be doing
- Electronic I-9 systems. What to consider when going paperless
The penalties are severe for I-9 violations, and the government is no longer negotiating fines of pennies on the dollar. I-9 fine levels were raised by 96% last year. And fines for "substantive" violations can reach $16,000 for each occurrence.
ICE is also focused on building criminal cases out of I-9 audits. Don't run the risk of your boss (or you!) being led off in handcuffs. Develop solid, audit-proof I-9 practices by joining us February 28 for this important interactive event.
