Please join Seyfarth's Immigration Compliance and Enforcement Team as they launch a four-part series focused on critical challenges faced by employers in the current era of more frequent immigration focused audits and investigations.
Employers already know that compliance with rapidly changing I-9 and E-Verify directives from the government is complex and challenging. Couple this with new agreements between agencies to provide access and share information and compliance becomes even more perplexing.
It is critical for employers to ensure that when federal or state agencies send any type of correspondence- or just show up unannounced -your company is prepared.
This series will take a deep dive into the mindset, behaviors and traps of the myriad of federal and state immigration enforcement agencies.
In our first conversation, our panel will focus on E-Verify compliance and establishing measures essential to proper use of the platform as well as state and federal enforcement. Employers should take any communications from the government seriously and be proactive in their compliance efforts.
We will address:
- E-Verify account compliance;
- Mandatory vs. voluntary participation, including FAR contractors; and,
- E-Verify state requirements and related audits.
Our conversation will also concentrate on account compliance monitoring, including desk reviews, historical reporting tricks and ways to identify issues relating to closing cases, duplicate cases, no cases, and more. Additionally, we will discuss how DOJ's Immigrant and Employee Rights Section I uses E-Verify data as well how ICE may mine it. Finally, if time permits, we will cover E-Verify compliance challenges, specifically electronic I-9 vendor relationships.
If you have any questions, please contact Kate Avery at firstname.lastname@example.org and reference this event.
