Are you ready for an ICE I-9 audit? It’s important to be ready for an ICE audit. ICE audits can be costly – the penalty for one I-9 violation can be over $2000. ICE audits often result in over $50,000 in penalties to employers and employers often are forced to terminate employees without proper work authorization. Some employers have paid $500,000+ in penalties. An internal I-9 audit will greatly minimize any penalties if done correctly. Thus, this webinar will provide information related to internal I-9 audits.

Why Should You Attend :

Employer representatives should attend in order to understand why I-9 compliance must be a priority. Often, it’s too late to think of I-9 compliance after ICE delivers a Notice of Inspection (NOI). Some ICE offices will give employers credit for corrections made after the delivery of an NOI.

Areas Covered During The Session: 

  1. Compliance obligations under IRCA.
  2. Impact of Increased ICE I-9 Inspections and Higher Penalties on Employers
    1. Penalties for Companies Committing I-9 Violations
    2. Post-Nov. 2015 I-9 Penalties Significantly higher
    3. Example of Impact of Penalties
  3. Proper use of Remote Verification during COVID
    1. When is it allowed
    2. Procedures must follow
  4. Internal I-9 Audit
    1. Importance of internal self-audits;
    2. How to conduct a self-audit;
    3. How to accurately complete an I-9 form to determine worker identity and eligibility;
    4. How to properly correct errors or missing data on I- 9 forms;
    5. Importance of an Immigration Compliance Policy;
    6. Key terms that should be in your Immigration Compliance Policy
