ICE Raids and Audits: What’s Happening Now and How to Respond - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

In the current climate of immigration enforcement, employers who hire seasonal or foreign workers are rightfully on edge about possible ICE raids. Under the Trump Administration, ICE raids are happening, especially in businesses that employ a lot of seasonal or immigrant workers.

Do you know what to do—and what not to do—if agents with Immigration Customs and Enforcement show up at your worksite? Will the employee who greets people entering your business be prepared and know what to ask for, do, or who to contact if agents serve a warrant? And, how can you best communicate with your workforce in a way to minimize anxiety and stress and maintain productivity?

Use this on-demand webinar on how to maneuver ICE raids and audits of the workplace. A skilled immigration attorney will walk you through the compliance danger zones to watch out for if ICE agents descend on your workplace and how to preserve your company’s legal rights while complying with your legal obligations under federal law.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Recognize the important distinction between an ICE audit and an ICE raid
  • Respond in the event of an ICE raid—what you must do and what you may refuse to do
  • Prepare for a raid or audit by defining the roles and responsibilities of key team members at various levels of your organization
  • Negotiate for additional time from ICE following a Notice of Suspect Employees to prevent your business from shutting down due to labor shortages
  • Communicate with workers about ICE’s activities—what to share, when, and how
  • Prepare for an ICE audit—and what you should never do in preparation
  • Anticipate what to expect in an ICE raid
  • Prepare your employees for what to do if you have to provide I-9s
  • Handle calls from the media or concerned workers’ family members about what’s going on in the event that a worker is removed from the worksite and detained during a raid
  • Effectively and humanely manage the workforce and maintain productivity during times of ICE-related turmoil 
  • Respond to the SSA’s revived policy of mailing out “no-match letters”
  • And much more!
