Unsure whether your company is in compliance with state and federal I-9 mandates? Then join us at 10 a.m. ET/ 9 a.m. CT on Tuesday, May 16 when Miller & Martin’s Chris Crevasse helps you get up to speed on everything you need to know about I-9 compliance, including penalties for failure to comply.
Crevasse says, “Forms I-9 are used to verify the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. All U.S. employers, regardless of the number of their employees, are required by federal law to complete a Form I-9 for each individual they hire, including both citizens and noncitizens. Have you and Joe, your new employee, been best friends since kindergarten? Doesn’t matter! Failure to promptly and properly complete a Form I-9 for each new hire can lead to monetary penalties that quickly add up.
Plus, employers must retain their Forms I-9 and make the forms available for inspection by maybe-not-so-friendly government officers. But that’s not all: federal law and some state laws also require certain employers to fulfill requirements under another employment verification system, E-Verify, with a different set of fun requirements and penalties – penalties that may include the loss of contracts and business licenses! This webinar will teach you the requirements of Form I-9 and E-Verify and guide you on how to ensure compliance and avoid penalties. And if it’s too late for that, don’t despair: we will offer words of comfort on how to set things right — and why you need to do that sooner rather than later.”
