Get Details of all the Changes to the Form I-9 and Tips and Resource Materials for those who complete it

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) has announced that it will release a newly revised Employment Verification Form, Form I-9 on November 22, 2016.  Employers are required to use the Form I-9 to verify the identity and employment authorization eligibility of their employees. The new Form I-9 will become mandatory on January 22, 2017.

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 $2,156 per Form I-9, an employer subject to a Form I-9 audit can be looking at fines in the tens, and, sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars.  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. With a new version of the Form I-9 being released, every employee who completes the Form I-9 needs to obtain updated training. This webinar by expert speaker Patricia A. Bollman will provide that detailed, comprehensive training.

Although the new Form I-9 has not been released yet, we know that it will contain many "smart" features when completed online in pdf format. Some of these "smart" features include drop down functionality for filling in lists and selecting dates, prompts on certain fields to ensure information is entered correctly and embedded instructions for completing each field. One of the primary goals of the new Form I-9 was to help employers reduce errors and ease the process of completing the I-9 form on their office computer. However, the new "smart" features do not constitute an electronic Form I-9. So it is important for employers to understand what the responsibilities are if the Form I-9 is completed on a computer. The new Form I-9 will also include some structural changes and new fields. We strongly recommend that before implementing use of the new Form I-9, that anyone who is responsible for handling the Form I-9 receive proper training. Training prior to implementation will seriously reduce errors. An increase in I-9 audits by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) is expected once the new Form I-9 becomes mandatory.  And remember - I-9 fines increased on August 1, 2016 so the potential liability to a company is significant.

Detailed training as to how to properly complete each section of the new Form I-9 as well as a review of the requirements for accepting documents as part of the Form I-9 process. The webinar will look in detail at all of the changes to the Form I-9 and provide tips and resource materials for those who complete the Form I-9. We will also review documents that can be accepted as part of the Form I-9 process and the rules related to acceptance of documents. We will discuss how to properly make corrections to the Form I-9.
