Employers & Immigration 2019:
I-9s, E-Verify, Audits, Visas & How to Prepare For the New Changes

Employers & Immigration

President Trump's plan to build the wall and beef up deportations is coupled with another immigration strategy … to use U.S. employers as a "virtual wall" against undocumented workers. What does that mean for you?

Employers will face several new immigration-law changes this year: stepped-up worksite I-9 audits and raids … restrictions to guest-worker visas … increased fines and enforcement levels … possible mandatory use of E-Verify … and more. Plus, employers are still trying to figure out the "Smart I-9" form they must complete for each new hire.

On Friday, April 19, join your peers for an in-depth look at how to stay in compliance with all these important immigration changes. Your trainer will be a true insider, attorney Kevin Lashus, a former assistant chief counsel at the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
