Are you an owner/operator, HR professional, compliance director or manager, or in-house counsel and interested in learning more about the Employment Eligibility Verification form (the “Form I-9”)? Here are some educational opportunities:
- If you are local to Atlanta, Georgia I will be joining my colleagues to talk about “Hot Topics in Immigration under the Trump Administration” at our offices on May 17, 2017 from 4 – 6 pm. The event is sponsored by the German American Chambers of Commerce. Click here to learn more and register for this presentation.
- In June I will be presenting a webinar for the Georgia Restaurant Association entitled, “Workplace Investigations by the Dept. of Homeland Security – Is Your Restaurant Ready?” The webinar is from 2 – 3 pm on June 5, 2017. Click here to register.
I recently wrote an article for Construction Business Owner entitled “The Record-Keeping Mistake You Could be Making” that addresses the Form I-9 and provides practical tips and best practices with respect to the form. To read the article click here.
Finally, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will be issuing a new Form I-9 this summer, which will take effect in September 2017. One reason being that the International Entrepreneur Rule requires changes to the form to allow parole status to serve as a basis for employment authorization.
