Your chances of facing an I-9 audit have shot up dramatically. Are your I-9 Forms and immigration practices up to the challenge? Do you know how to complete the brand-new I-9 form? Are you aware of the fines that can be assessed?
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has dramatically increased the number of I-9 audits conducted annually — from 250 in 2007, to approximately 1,500 in 2010, to 2,500 in 2011, and more than 3,000 in 2012. The amount of audits is expected to reach 3,500 in 2013.
The number is expected to grow. ICE has announced a plan to increase audits by 40%. It’s all part of the Obama administration’s “bold new audit initiative” to find and punish employers that violate immigration laws and fail to properly complete I-9s.
|Newest development: ICE has established an Employment Compliance Inspection Center to expedite Form I-9 audits, allowing ICE agents to audit EVEN MORE businesses.
The result: Greater risk for your company, your executives … and you!
Understanding these issues will be vital for your HR compliance in 2013 and beyond. That’s why we’re presenting Immigration Compliance Update 2013: I-9s, E-Verify, Crackdowns and the ‘Obama Effect.’
This eye-opening interactive webinar on Nov. 12 will be hosted by two nationally prominent immigration experts, David Selden and Julie Pace, who you may have seen on CNN discussing immigration law in Arizona and nationwide. They have handled hundreds of I-9 audits and enforcement actions.
What you’ll learn:
- How to legally complete the new I-9 and avoid dangerous audit traps.
- Most common mistakes to avoid in completing I-9s — plus, you’ll get a printable I-9/E-Verify compliance flow chart to help you in the hiring process.
- The top 10 strategies for employer I-9 and immigration compliance.
- The ICE crackdown: Who’s being targeted; what are the penalties; how do you handle government investigations, use of “testers,” surveillance of companies and employees?
- E-Verify: How the online system works, who must use it and the legal do’s and don’ts.
- Outlook for immigration reforms on the national and state level.
Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to ask these experts about your own I-9, E-Verify or immigration issues.
