Employers are required to complete the Form I-9 for all new hires in the U.S., regardless of immigration status. The deceptively “simple” two-page form, for many employers, represents significant risk. Paperwork violations, even if an employer’s entire workforce is made up of authorized workers, can give rise to fines in excess of $2,300 per employee.  More serious violations can result in criminal prosecution and imprisonment.

This webinar will, among other topics, cover:

  • The Thursday rule: deadlines for Form I-9 completion
  • The “melbox” rule: how to spot a fraudulent document
  • Electronic I-9 rules: audit trails, electronic signatures, indexing, the difference between the I-9 and E-Verify, and more
  • COVID-19 rules: remote versus virtual I-9 completion, required updates
  • Document rules: hospital-issued birth certificates; metal, laminated, restricted, and/or unsigned Social Security cards; unsigned passports; expired documents during COVID; and more
  • Constructive knowledge and due diligence requirements relating to Social Security “no match” letters, unemployment inquiries, and hot line tips
  • E-Verify rules: including the new 10-day Tentative Nonconfirmation rule announced by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services in October 2020

The webinar will include time for a Q&A session with Nici Kersey.
