Designed for novices and experienced HR compliance professionals alike, this comprehensive 1.5-day workshop will examine all aspects of employment verification processing and monitoring, including best practices for I-9 compliance program management, the latest tools for automation, and responding to government audits. The course will also cover advanced topics addressing due diligence in mergers & acquisitions, special rules for contractors and remote hires, international employees, and discrimination avoidance.
