It is a violation of Federal immigration law for any employer to knowingly hire employees who are not authorized to work in the United States. The Federal Form I-9: Employment Eligibility Verification, is used by employers as a record of their basis for determining the eligibility of an employee to work in the U.S. The form is maintained by the employer and made available upon request for inspection by officials of the Department of Homeland Security, The Department of Labor, and the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices.

Form I-9 supports a Homeland Security procedure that ensures U.S. employers hire only those who have the proper work eligibility and identification documents. When employers are learning what an I-9 form is and how it works, it’s important to point out that they are responsible for getting it completed within three days of a new hire’s start date. 

U.S. employers need to have each new hire complete an I-9 form. The completed form, verified and signed, should be kept on file for up to three years for any employee currently employed and up to one year for terminated employees. You may need to show these documents to immigration officials or other government employees who may check to make sure your business is only hiring documented workers eligible to work in the U.S.

In an effort to control illegal immigration, in 1986 Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA).  The IRCA was enacted to legalize approximately three million undocumented immigrants, while at the same time, attempted to deter future undocumented immigration. In order to be compliant with IRCA’s directives, all U.S. employers must complete a Form I-9 for each employee hired after November 6, 1986.

Why Should You Attend:

Are you confident your organization is fully compliant with federal immigration laws, or are you at risk for being assessed costly fines, or worse, for potential violations?

The process of completing, storing, and properly disposing of I-9s can be daunting.  The current Administration is strongly focused on immigration enforcement, and the changes of your organization being audited are higher than ever. Due to this increased focus, more employers are conducting proactive self-audits of their I-9s and supporting documentation. Additionally, more employers are participating in the Federal E-Verify program, a web-based system that allows a business to electronically confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.

Earlier this year, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) issued a revised edition of Form I-9.  Employers are required to begin using the new form effective May 1, 2020.

In this informative 90-minute program, you’ll be provided with the information you need to ensure your organization is Form I-9 compliant, understand what constitutes proper documentation, recordkeeping best practices, and methods for conducting self-audits.bWe will also discuss the changes made to Form I-9 that went into effect on May 1, 2020.  You will learn about the E-Verify process which can assist employers with good faith immigration compliance. Additionally, participation in this webinar will provide you with insight into surviving an external audit to avoid hefty fines and enforcement actions from ICE.
