Employers are required to complete a Form I-9 for each employee hired after November 6, 1986. And while the Form I-9 may appear simple, I-9 compliance is a complex procedure with many technical rules that are not found in the instructions to the Form I-9. The Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer (“OCAHO”), which is the administrative law court that handles Form I-9 litigation, has held that an employer is obligated to provide proper Form I-9 training to the people who complete the Form I-9 on its behalf.
Because fines for a mistake in a Form I-9 can be as high as $1,100 per form, while an employer subject to a Form I-9 audit can be looking at fines in the tens, and sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars. It’s too high a cost to pay for not provided proper training to your personnel. The first step an employer can take to avoid these fines is to make certain that every person who completes a Form I-9 has received comprehensive training on how to properly complete the Form I-9.
This webinar with expert speaker Patricia Bollman will go through each section of the Form I-9 and demonstrate how to properly complete the Form as well as review the rules for accepting documents as part of the Form I-9 process.
