Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar on I-9 compliance will focus upon recent immigration policies, enforcement trends, tactics and penalties for violations. It will instruct attendees on how they can improve their I-9 compliance and avoid penalties.

Why Should You Attend:

Government efforts to enforce immigration laws have increased over the last five or six years. More and more companies are facing penalties for immigration violations. The Obama Administration has made it clear that the burden of enforcement will fall squarely upon employers.

The current administration disdains the use of raids and public seizure of persons or assets and instead focuses upon audits of employer I-9 forms, imposition of severe civil penalties, and the attendant publicity.

The recent settlement by Abercrombie and Fitch of an I-9 sanctions case for over $1 million demonstrates that it is dangerous for employers to rely upon software for proper I-9 compliance.

Today, in order to avoid huge fines and possible criminal liability, employers need to be much more vigilant and diligent. Attend this webinar to stay informed about current enforcement trends and tactics. Learn what industries are being targeted for enforcement and why. You will also understand what the government looks for when they audit I-9 compliance. With a better understanding of the basic rules of I-9 compliance, you/employers are better positioned to prevent future problems and cure existing I-9 form defects.

Many managers are shocked to learn that their I-9 forms -- which appeared to be deceptively simple to complete -- have double-digit error rates during audit. This webinar will also show how most I-9 defects can be cured.

  • Current Government enforcement trends, policies, and tactics.
