Workplace Application:
I-9 enforcement is the most visible activity in an increasingly volatile immigration environment. 

Employers across the U.S. have witnessed a significant increase in Form I-9 enforcement. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has dramatically increased the number of worksite investigations and I-9 audits by 300 to 750 percent, while emphasizing that all employers (regardless of size or industry) must take their I-9 responsibilities seriously. This session provides the latest I-9 news and updates, while exploring ICE's overall worksite policy initiatives for 2020 and beyond.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the latest developments in I-9 and E-Verify guidance from the various government agencies.
  • Learn how to evaluate and assess potential I-9 compliance risk based on the government's current rules relating to substantive and procedural violations and recent cases involving Form I-9 compliance penalties.
  • Develop policies and procedures to conduct an internal Form I-9 self-audit from start to finish in a consistent and non-discriminatory manner.
