GoffWilson Announces a May I-9 Event

Learn to successfully navigate in a more aggressive worksite enforcement environment. Sign up for our next I-9 training here
 
The current administration has made it clear, through Executive Orders, that enforcement of employment verification laws will be more rigorous. There is a new proposal to hire 10,000 more U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, many of whom will focus on I-9 audits (often referred to as “desktop raids”). 
 
The I-9 form affects all employers in the country, and the Trump administration has vowed to assess millions of dollars in civil penalties for I-9 violations and employment discrimination. Small businesses across the U.S. have already been assessed thousands of dollars in civil penalties for I-9 violations, with some companies losing their business licenses and being squeezed out of the bidding process for government contracts
.  
HR professionals, recruiters, and anyone who works with the I-9 form should attend this important seminar to keep themselves, and their compliance programs, up to date on current I-9 regulations. GoffWilson’s experienced I-9 team will teach tips on compliance and the E-Verify process, and answer any I-9 questions you may have. Participants are given hands-on exercises to put education into practice and learn about the civil and criminal penalties associated with non-compliance.
 
At the conclusion of this seminar, you’ll have the information you need to avoid the pitfalls of the I-9 landscape—and the confidence that comes with knowing you’re in compliance. If you need to understand the array of compliance-related regulations or simply want to brush up on the latest I-9 info, sign up today! GoffWilson I-9 Workshops offer participants recertification credit hours through the HR Certification Institute (HRCI) for PHP, SPHR, and GPHR.
 
GoffWilson offers I-9 training in public and private settings several times throughout the year. Contact our office today to sign up or to request more information! Also, stay tuned to our bLAWg for more updates on I-9 compliance and keeping your company up to date. It’s what we do and it’s our passion.
