Since 1986, every US employer has been obligated by IRCA to verify the identity and employment authorization of each employee hired on Form I-9. Nearly 30 years later, employers and their counsel continue to struggle with the best ways to ensure IRCA compliance.

Join Practical Law and Jackson Lewis P.C. for a free 75-minute webinar that will address the key elements of a compliant employment eligibility verification program.

Attendees will learn: 

  • Employer obligations under IRCA and an explanation of ICE’s worksite enforcement strategy.
  • Best practices for completing the new version of Form I-9.
  • Avoiding discrimination in the Form I-9 process.
  • Practical tips for employers to minimize their exposure to penalties from a worksite enforcement action, including self-audits and training sessions.

A short Q&A session will follow.
