Join our Immigration Compliance and Enforcement Team as they undertake an examination of critical considerations that employers face at various stages in employment and company growth. Our panelists are poised to offer practical perspectives on the evolving issues that are sure to shape best practices from hiring to termination.

An organization’s unintended mistakes, even before an offer goes out to a candidate, can serve as the basis for a discrimination claim or can trigger unwanted interest by federal agencies, such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Department of Justice or U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
Follow Karen, a company Recruiter; Harry, the Human Resource manager; and Julie, the General Counsel, as they face immigration compliance issues and watch how they respond to the renewed national focus on immigration. Share the challenges they face in light of the administration’s directive, “Buy American Hire American”, and increasingly nuanced I-9 and E-Verify problems.

Our first session concentrates on pre-hire concerns and challenges

  • What types of questions and inquiries related to immigration status are acceptable, how far can interview questions go?
  • What does it mean to be part of a protected class?
  • What is considered pre-screening and how does that tie into background checks, E-Verify and SSNS?
  • How do we handle changes in immigration benefits policy and program the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS)?
