Form I-9: Changes, E-Verification, Audits & More
Are you confident your organization is in full compliance with Federal immigration laws, or are you at risk for being assessed costly fines, or worse, for potential violations? In an effort to control illegal immigration, in 1986 Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA). The IRCA was enacted to legalize approximately three million undocumented immigrants, while at the same time, attempting to deter future undocumented immigration. In order to be in compliance with IRCA’s directives, all U.S. employers must complete a Form I-9 for each employee hired after November 6, 1986.
It is a violation of Federal immigration law for any employer to knowingly hire employees who are not authorized to work in the United States.
The Federal Form I-9: Employment Eligibility Verification, is used by employers as a record of their basis for determining the eligibility of an employee to work in the U.S. The form is maintained by the employer and made available upon request for inspection by officials of the Department of Homeland Security, The Department of Labor, and the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices.
Due to the ongoing precautions related to COVID-19, DHS has extended the Form I-9 requirement flexibility policy until April 30, 2022. Join us on Compliancevent to have your expert explain the key steps involved in the e-verification and self-audits.
