Webinar on How to Survive an I-9 Audit - Webinar By ComplianceOnline (HR Training)
Venue: Online Event
|Event Date/Time: Sep 06, 2011||End Date/Time: Sep 06, 2011|
Whenever an employer hires an individual, the employer must prepare an I-9 that confirms the applicantâ€™s identity and that the applicant is legally authorized to work in the United States.
ICE conducts over 60,000 I-9 inspections each year. In addition, ICE has a Memorandum of Understanding with the Office of Contract Compliance Programs and the Wage and Hour Division where these agencies will inspect your I-9s during an OFCCP audit or a wage and hour investigation. Failure to complete the I-9 properly can lead to civil and criminal penalties (up to $3000) for each unauthorized working alien and a prison sentence of up to six months.
In addition, an executive order requires federal contractors to use e-verify to determine the validity of the documents produced during theI-9 process, and many states have similar laws. How do you fill out an I-9 properly? Do you know when you can hire a foreigner who is not a U.S. citizen? How do you e-verify?
This 90-minute webinar will provide answers for all the above.
