For those employers getting chills down their spines from recent worksite raids by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the new rule requiring the use of E-Verify by federal contractors that went into effect on September 8, I-9Compliance.com — a designated E-Verify service agent and member of the Pre-Employ.com Family of Companies — offers a complimentary webinar titled “E-Verify & Federal Contractors: Know The Facts” that is currently available for on-demand viewing at www.i-9compliance.com/Webinars.
The webinar — presented by Jorge R. Lopez, Esq. of Littler Mendelson, P.C. and Peter Weiglein of I-9Compliance.com — features key issues surrounding the new rule that began September 8 requiring federal contractors to use the E-Verify electronic verification system to verify their employees’ eligibility to work in the United States. In addition, the webinar discusses ICE’s new worksite enforcement initiative targeting companies that hire illegal workers — including Executives, Managers, and Human Resources Professionals — instead of the illegal workers themselves.
Now more than ever, employers must maintain full compliance or risk government audits. Viewers of “E-Verify & Federal Contractors: Know The Facts” will learn how to maintain full compliance, reduce liability, eliminate errors, and ensure a legal workforce to avoid government audits that can lead to fines, penalties, and even jail. Employers wanting to learn more information about new E-Verify regulations and ICE worksite enforcement may view the webinar on demand at www.i-9compliance.com/Webinars.
