As Form I-9 enforcement has been stepped up under the current administration, an increasing number of employers are being penalized for I-9 compliance violations, including violations related to electronic I-9 systems. It is essential for employers to understand how to properly complete and retain I-9s whether by paper or electronically and understand the pros and cons of using electronic I-9 software. Balancing the compliance requirements of the law while avoiding discriminatory practices is key.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a team of thought leaders to help you understand the compliance requirements as well as the pitfalls and resulting penalties faced by many employers. You will learn important information that will assist you in bringing your company into compliance before your company is served with a Notice of Inspection by ICE.
