Hillsboro, OR, September 01, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Edupliance announces webinar titled, “How to Prepare the New I-9 Form Correctly and Avoid Hiring Illegal Aliens” that aims to update attendees on the significant changes in how to properly complete each section of the updated Form I-9 as well as review the requirements for accepting documents as part of the Form I-9 process. The event goes live on Thursday, September 7, from 01:00 PM to 02:30 PM, EST / 10 AM to 11:30 AM PST.
Whenever an employer hires an individual, the employer must prepare an I-9 that confirms the applicant’s identity and that the applicant is legally authorized to work in the United States. Although an employer is not required to be an immigration expert in filling out the I-9, small errors can lead to costly fines. ICE conducts over 60,000 I-9 inspections each year. In addition, an executive order requires federal contractors to use e-verify to determine the validity of the documents produced during the I-9 process, and many states have similar laws. ICE also has a Memorandum of Understanding with the Office of Contract Compliance Programs and the Wage and Hour Division where these agencies will inspect your I-9s during an OFCCP audit or a wage and hour investigation. Failure to complete the I-9 properly can lead to civil and criminal penalties (up to $3000) for each unauthorized working alien and a prison sentence of up to six months. The new Form I-9 will become mandatory on September 17, 2017.
The 90-minute webinar will be conducted by Susan Desmond, an expert with over 30 years of representing management in all areas of labor and employment law. She is a principal with Jackson Lewis PC. A frequent author and speaker, Ms. Desmond is listed in Best Lawyers in America and has been named by Chambers USA as one of America’s leading business lawyers for labor and employment law. She is also listed in Mid-South Super Lawyers and Louisiana Super Lawyers.
