With Form I-9 audits and fines on the rise, and expected to continue to grow this year, achieving compliance has become more crucial for businesses as they onboard new employees. As U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) steps up its efforts to identify instances of hiring unauthorized workers, and with fines of up to $16,000 for each violation, errors in Form I-9 management, even if unintentional, can have a significant impact on the business. With the latest version of Form I-9 released last month, it is now more important than ever that employees understand the requirements and the options available to help them achieve compliance.
During his appearance on the DriveThruHR radio show, Dave Fowler, vice president of Product Strategy for Equifax Workforce Solutions, will discuss the changes to the new Form I-9 and how these updates impact employment eligibility verification and hiring procedures. In addition, he will address how the expanded form has brought about new rules regarding acceptable eligibility documents and how its changes impact E-Verify®, the federal government's Internet-based system used to determine if employees are eligible to work in the U.S. Fowler will also share his expertise and offer best practices for how employers can meet compliance goals with the latest Form I-9 regulations and avoid the costly fines of non-compliance.
HR and Payroll professionals who wish to learn more about the new Form I-9 and how to ensure compliance with its new regulations are encouraged to tune into DriveThruHR for this informative session.
