Is there an audit in your future? I-9 & E-Verify Compliance Law Update

Printer-friendly version
Location:The Wilshire Grand Hotel, West Orange
Sponsored by:EANJ

This past June, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) served another 1,000 Notices of     Inspection (NOI) targeting businesses related to vital infrastructure and critical resources including industries that include construction, agriculture, food production, financial services, IT, healthcare, water treatment, postal and shipping, transportation, and commercial nuclear reactors.

The NOI requests not only Form I-9 documentation, but also payroll records, IRS federal tax returns, corporate records and bylaws, copies of immigration filings and more.

E-Verify adds another dimension to the I-9 process of verifying the work eligibility for new hires.

As of September 2009 certain federal contractors and sub-contractors are required to use the E-Verify system to confirm employment eligibility. Many states already require it and there is pending federal legislation that would require usage of the E-verify by all employers.

Now more than ever it is crucial that employer’s perform a self audit of their Form I-9’s and familiarize themselves with the E-Verify system.
This workshop is a unique opportunity to hear directly from the agencies that enforce and audit I-9 and E-Verify compliance, including a detailed overview of an ICE I-9 audit process; how to properly fill out the I-9; IRCA; ICE Investigations and current worksite enforcement policy; ICE IMAGE program; an overview of USCIS' E-Verify Program and other practical tips for employers to avoid costly mistakes.

Speakers will include:   

Virginia Matyka, ICE Forensic Auditor
Drew Torpey, Special Agent, ICE 
Yvette LaGonterie, Chief, Outreach Branch, USCIS
David Nachman, ESQ., Nachman & Associates
