Complying With I-9 and E-Verify Regulations
Staffing professionals frequently complete the Form I-9 and participate in the E-Verify program as part of their normal duties, but they may not have a proper understanding of the federal rules and laws that govern the processes. In recent years, staffing companies have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in civil penalties for violating these laws, including for engaging in discrimination.
This session will help staffing professionals understand how they can avoid discrimination in hiring and firing, and how they can comply with Form I-9 and E-Verify rules. The session will also describe free government resources for staffing professionals.
During this webinar, attendees will learn
- What defines discrimination based on citizenship status and national origin
- How to avoid discrimination in completing Form I-9
- How to avoid discrimination in handling E-Verify tentative nonconfirmation notices
- What free resources are available for staffing professionals who have questions or need assistance
