Immigration Compliance Update 2009-2010:
I-9s, E-Verify, Crackdowns and the 'Obama Effect'
Join us for the new session of this popular event!


The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) just launched what it’s calling “a bold new audit initiative” to find and punish employers that hire illegal workers. Proof: In just one day this summer, ICE sent out more Notices of  Inspection than it did in the entire year of 2008!

President Obama is pushing a major shift in immigration enforcement to focus on civil and criminal actions against employers that violate I-9 and hiring laws.

In addition, thousands of employers are now required to use the electronic E-Verify system … employers are still trying to figure out which version of the I-9 to use … and confusion still reigns over how to handle “no-match” letters.

The result: greater risk for your company, your executives … and you!  Immigration-related work site arrests (including HR professionals!) have skyrocketed more than 1200% in the past five years (see chart below).

Understanding these issues will be vital for your HR compliance in 2009 and beyond.  That’s why HR SPECIALIST is presenting Immigration Compliance Update 2009-2010.

Register now for this eye-opening interactive webinar on Oct. 28, hosted by immigration superlawyer Gregory Siskind. Gregory is frequently quoted in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal and is the author of the new SHRM book, The Employer’s Immigration Compliance Desk Reference.
