The New Form I-9: HR Alert!

"Immigration reform continues to be at the top of the 2013 agenda for President Obama and the Congress.  Any reform will likely include continuing worksite enforcement and fines for employers that fail to properly verify their workforce and an expansion of (even mandatory) E-Verify.  Additionally, USCIS released a revised and expanded Form I-9 which must be in use by tomorrow, May 7th.  Employers are likely to be engaged in responding to an I-9 Notice of Inspection, determining whether to settle or litigate a Notice of Intent to fine; and acting on a Notice of Suspect documents.  Favorable decisions from the Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer (OCAHO)can help you evaluate your company’s current status and plan for training and attorney-directed compliance audits." - Giselle Carson, May 6, 2013.
