Why Should You Attend:

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) is storming the I-9 audit trail and is raid-ready, levying big fines for employers not in compliance with the immigration laws. In fiscal year 2013, ICE inspected the I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Forms of 3,127 employers and issued 637 final orders for more than $15 million in fines. This year is going to be another record-breaking year for immigration enforcement.

This webinar will explain how to get your I-9 records and practices up-to-date, so you can stay in compliance and stay out of the path of the ICE storm.

Topic Background:

* In October 2013, a software company headquartered in Texas paid a $34 million settlement for, among other immigration violations, failing to maintain I-9 records for many of its foreign nationals in the United States in 2010 and 2011 as required by law and a widespread failure to update and re-verify the employment authorization status of a large percentage of its foreign national employees.

* In 2013, the Department of Justice’s Office of Special Counsel claimed that a major retailer engaged in unfair I-9 documentary practices against work-authorized immigrant employees during the employment eligibility re-verification process and that some employees suffered economic harm through lost wages or seniority. As a result, the retailer will pay $175,000 in civil penalties. In addition, it will establish a fund to compensate those damaged by its practices and will have its employment eligibility verification practices subject to the DOJ monitoring and reporting for a period of two years.

* ICE made 520 criminal arrests tied to worksite enforcement investigations in 2012. Of the individuals criminally arrested, 240 were owners, managers, supervisors or human resources employees. They face charges such as harboring or knowingly hiring illegal aliens. The remaining workers who were criminally arrested face charges such as aggravated identity theft and Social Security fraud.
