What Employers Need to know to be Ready for New I-9 Form

Duration: 60 Minutes
In this webinar, Speaker Bruce E. Buchanan will discuss the new I-9 form, which was announced in mid-November 2016 and must be used for all new hires as of January 22, 2017. Employers need to be ready for the new I-9 form in order to not commit paperwork violations, for which Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) could issue costly penalties. Although some of the changes are minor, violations of these changes could be costly. Additionally, the USCIS is introducing a 'smart' I-9 form, which is different than the paper or electronic I-9 form.
New I-9 Form
Instructor: Bruce E. Buchanan
Product ID: 501945
Objectives of the Presentation
  • New features of the I-9 and what has changed
  • Guidance on properly completing the new form
  • Details employers should know about the new form and maintaining compliance
  • Best practices and key requirements
  • Solutions and resources to aid employers in complying with I-9 regulations
Why should you Attend
The new I-9 form could have a major impact on employers because if employers commit paperwork violations, it could cost them tens of thousands of dollars, especially with the doubling of the amount of penalties assessed for violations. Many current salaried exempt employees will no longer meet the new minimum weekly salary. Taking proactive steps are especially important in light of the recently announced increase in potential I-9 penalties and fines and the government's continuing mission to create a culture of employer compliance.

Topic Background
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) continue their record-setting pace in auditing and investigating employers over worksite and I-9 compliance concerns. With yet another version of the Form I-9 being recently published, multiple state and federal E-Verify obligations to track, a dizzying array of electronic software options to assess, and potential civil and criminal exposure persisting as a risk in this increasingly complicated area of law, employers may want to ensure that they are implementing and following appropriate policies to protect valued employees and the company itself.
