ENFIELD, Conn. — In this era of ever increasing enforcement, it is critical to have an understanding of the I-9 hiring process and compliance requirements. To provide Northeast producers with the need to know information regarding ag labor, Farm Credit East will be hosting a free webinar on Friday, December 15, at 11:00 AM.
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. Given ICE’s policy of strict compliance, producers must understand this form. This important webinar will cover:
- The I-9 hiring process and pitfalls;
- I-9 completion and record keeping;
- The I-9 Audit Process; and
- Information on how to handle an ICE raid on your farm.
Leonard J. D’Arrigo, Partner with Whiteman Osterman & Hanna LLP in Albany, N.Y., will present this webinar, providing important information to ensure your ag business complies with government regulations and avoids allegations of hiring discrimination.
Join this informative session on December 15 from 11:00 AM to 12 noon. This webinar is open to all interested northeast farm-related businesses and is free to participate. To register, visit FarmCreditEast.com/webinars.
