As the administration continues to step up enforcement activities on companies violating immigration law, the need for your company to review your compliance program intensifies. This would include: (1) ensuring that I-9s of every employee is properly and correctly filled-out, (2) reviewing and training employers/managers on compliance policies and issues, and (3) preparing for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) audits. Aside from that, an effective compliance program must include keeping in the know with respect to recent developments that are equally significant to the current rules to avoid serious and costly errors.
The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of distinguished professionals and key thought leaders to help understand the most critical issues in immigration law. They will address the following key issues:
- New Form I-9 - Important Changes and Considerations when filling-out
- Employment Compliance Inspection Center - It’s Role in Identifying Who to Audit
- Issues and Updates in E-Verify Law
- Penalties for Non - Compliance
- Mitigating Potential Pitfalls that could lead to Audits
