Alert: Your organization's odds of being targeted for an audit of your I-9 forms have skyrocketed, and the Trump Administration followed through on its promise of a fivefold increase in the number of I-9 audits and worksite inspections in 2018. Plus, the feds have recently introduced a brand-new version of the I-9 form that you must be using. And the fines for I-9 paperwork violations have nearly doubled.
Are you next in line for an audit? What's new on the I-9 form? And what big workplace immigration changes are coming from the Trump Administration? Learn how to get in compliance with the advice from a true insider – a former ICE assistant chief counsel.
The U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) is going all-out in its "bold new audit initiative" to crack down on employers who violate immigration laws. Administrative I-9 audits and on-site inspections are ICE's tools of choice.
Too often, company execs and HR managers assume their I-9 compliance practices are in order when, in fact, their records and policies are littered with mistakes, leaving the business and individuals open to fines, lawsuits, and jail time. Are you sure that your I-9 practices can pass muster?
Register now for our timely webinar, I-9 Compliance Workshop. You'll be learning from a true immigration law expert and Washington insider. Attorney Kevin Lashus is a former assistant chief counsel at the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The penalties are severe for I-9 violations, and the government is no longer negotiating fines of pennies on the dollar. I-9 fine levels were raised by 96% last year. And fines for "substantive" violations can reach $16,000 for each occurrence.
ICE is also focused on building criminal cases out of I-9 audits. Don't run the risk of your boss (or you.) being led off in handcuffs. Develop solid, audit-proof I-9 practices by joining us March 21 for this important interactive event.
