    Event Description:
    I-9 Workshop
    How to address I-9 basics, social security no-match letters, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) I-9 audits


    Featuring speakers from Cascadia Cross Border Law

    Form I-9 is used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. All U.S. employers must complete a Form I-9 for every U.S. hire–this includes citizens and noncitizens. The government places the burden on employers to ensure that all Form I-9s are completed fully and accurately.
     
    ICE conducts audits of employer I-9 forms. Failure to comply with I-9 rules can subject an employer to potential criminal charges. Even so-called “minor paperwork mistakes,” or “technical mistakes,” can result in costly penalties for employers
     
    Unfortunately, many employer I-9 processes are imperfect. In such cases, the most important step an employer can take to protect themselves from potential fines and criminal charges is identify and correct I-9 errors, omissions, and discrepancies now before ICE comes knocking on the door. ICE views “good faith” I-9 violations with cynicism if corrections are made after ICE sends a notice of audit.
