In 2009, ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) fined employers more than $24 million for failure to comply with immigration laws and this trend is continuing. As a result, U.S. employers can no longer afford to have a weak or
nonexistent compliance program.
At our briefing last November, we discussed the increased emphasis on immigration enforcement by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Labor (DOL). Since that time, the DHS and DOL have followed through on their promises, visiting thousands of businesses across the U.S. and highlighting the need for organizations to develop and roll out appropriate "preparedness policies."
We invite you to join us for a discussion of how to bring your company into compliance and ensure that you stay there.
Topics will include:
- Forecast on comprehensive immigration reform
- Government enforcement trends
- Necessary elements of a successful immigration compliance program, including:
- Sponsorship policy
- I-9 audit and compliance policy
- H-1B internal audit
- Contractor/vendor policy
- Preparedness and response protocol
