Date: July 19, 2017

Event: McAfee & Taft Webinar Series

Location: Online

The Trump administration’s efforts to aggressively enforce the nation’s immigration laws now include increased investigations and audits to identify undocumented workers in America’s workplaces. Federal agencies, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), have ramped-up their hiring of field office and enforcement personnel to ensure U.S. employers are complying with employment verification and eligibility requirements.

During this complimentary one-hour webinar, McAfee & Taft labor and employment attorneys Charlie Plumb and Paige Good discuss what the new administration’s tough stance on immigration means for employers, review best practices for maintaining Form I-9 compliance, and explain why the stakes have never been higher. Topics include:

  • What to expect from an ICE investigation
  • Changes to the new Form I-9 for new hires
  • Common Form I-9 errors and how to avoid them
  • Best practices for completing and retaining eligibility and verification documents
  • Correcting errors or problems with your eligibility and verification process and records
  • Approaches to an effective I-9 self-audit
  • Avoiding claims of discrimination when conducting your I-9 self-audit
  • Penalties for paperwork violations
