2020 Form I-9 Recordkeeping Updates: How to stay Compliant with Federal Law - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn step-by-step how to complete Form I-9 and how to re-verify, store, and destroy paper and electronic files in compliance with federal law.

Since employers must have a valid Form I-9 on file for nearly every employee, you might think that filling out, storing, and properly destroying I-9s would become second nature. However, the process involves many potential areas of confusion for even the most seasoned HR professionals, including:

  • How to verify documents for remote employees
  • What to do when you suspect an employee’s documentation is invalid (or, even worse, clearly fraudulent)
  • How to handle SSN inconsistencies
  • The proper way to correct mistakes on I-9s
  • How long to retain I-9s
  • Re-verification
  • When and whether electronic signatures are valid

And, with the Trump Administration’s continued focused on immigration enforcement, the chances of your organization being audited (or raided) by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are higher than ever.

Due to this focus, more employers are taking the opportunity to conduct proactive documentation audits of their I-9s and supporting records. Employers are also more eager to learn about, and participate in, the federal E-Verify program, asking how—and whether—this program can assist with good faith immigration compliance.

Use this on-demand webinar when Elaine Young of Kirton McConkie and Jacob Monty of Monty & Ramirez, both seasoned immigration attorneys, will provide the latest insights for ensuring Form I-9 recordkeeping compliance and how to avoid hefty fines and enforcement actions from ICE. This all-new live webinar will feature a Q&A format designed to help you get your Form I-9 procedures and recordkeeping in order.

After attending this webinar, you will understand:

  • How the current Form I-9 differs from past versions
  • The benefits of registering with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ new website
  • Best practices for filling out the Form I-9 and legally acceptable ways to verify employee documentation
  • How to benefit from the error-checking feature of the smart Form I-9
  • Answers to common, but tricky, Form I-9 questions, such as:
    • Is an out of state driver’s license that says “Not valid for federal ID purposes” an acceptable List B document?
    • Can you accept a temporary green card? What if it’s about to expire?
    • What do you do when a proffered document just looks kind of “off” to you?
    • Is it acceptable to look at remote hires’ documents via Skype or FaceTime, or have them scanned over?
  • Form I-9 re-verification requirements for non-U.S. citizens and non-permanent residents
  • How to complete a Form I-9 for new employees using automatically extended employment authorization documents (EADs)
  • Best practices for copying and storing Forms I-9, from supporting documentation to paper Forms I-9 and electronic records
  • How to comply with the Form I-9 retention period and when it’s safe to destroy a Form I-9
  • Which recordkeeping errors attract U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s scrutiny and hefty fines
  • And much more!
