The New ICE Age: I-9 Compliance and Immigration Enforcement

In this era of ever increasing enforcement, it is critical to have an understanding of the I-9 hiring process, as well as compliance requirements to avoid allegations of hiring discrimination and to comply with government regulations.

ICE takes a “no tolerance” approach to I-9 completion and maintenance and there is the potential for significant employer sanctions and penalties for seemingly minor errors and non-compliance. You may ask, why do we need to spend an hour on a two page form? The fact that the form instructions/manual is 63 pages long answers this question! The I-9 form is riddled with traps and ambiguity and given ICE’s policy of strict compliance, you need to know how to avoid these traps.

This program will cover the I-9 hiring process and pitfalls, I-9 completion and record keeping, the I-9 Audit Process and how to handle an ICE raid on your farm.
