Form I-9: Understanding The Anti-Discrimination Provisions Of The Law

Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webcast

Form I-9: Understanding The Anti-Discrimination Provisions Of The Law
When training staff on how to complete a Form I-9, most employers do not consider the portion of the Employment Eligibility Verification law that prohibits discrimination.

While most employers are aware that the Immigration and Nationality Act (“INA”) requires all employers to complete and retain a Form I-9 for every employee hired, many are unaware that the INA also contains provisions which make it unlawful to discriminate during the Form I-9 process.

These discrimination provisions affect:
  • Procedures for accepting documents during the Form I-9 process
  • Which immigration status questions can be asked of a perspective employee
  • The procedures for re-verifying expired documents
  • The process for conducting an internal I-9 audit
  • How to make corrections to a Form I-9
These requirements are frequently unknown or misunderstood by employers. As a result, many employers inadvertently violate the discrimination aspects of the law and find themselves in the cross hairs of an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Special Counsel (“OSC”).

This audio conference will review the practices which are considered discrimination in the I-9 process under the law, as well as discuss policies and procedures which every business needs to have in place in order to reduce the likelihood of discriminatory I-9 practices.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
