Current Trends in Employer Sanctions

This 90 minute audio seminar was presented live on December 6, 2012, from 2:00 pm-3:30 pm eastern time

Over the last several years, employers have seen a dramatic increase in I-9 inspections. After years of inactivity, the OCAHO decisions that have resulted from this have provided some guidance for practitioners who face inspections, and have raised awareness on the need for compliance and planning among all types of employers. This panel will cover recent trends in employer sanctions, I-9 inspections, and OCAHO decisions. In addition, the panel will provide advice on best practices for preparing clients for a notice of inspection, negotiating settlements with ICE counsel, and case procedure before OCAHO.

  • Recent Trends in I-9 Inspections
  • An Ounce of Prevention: Avoiding the Dreaded NOI
  • NOIF: Comparing ICE's Charges with the Law and OCAHO Precedent
  • Negotiating with ICE Counsel
  • OCAHO: Crash Course on Procedure
  • Future Trends: What Changes Following the Election?
