Employment eligibility verification and I-9 compliance are required for every employer doing business in the United States. The employment eligibility verification process is more complex than it appears, and significant legal issues can arise during the employer’s identity documentation and employment eligibility verification process. The Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer (OCAHO) and the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC) provide further guidance for practitioners to consider. Our group of experts will discuss advising clients on I-9 compliance and preparing the new I-9 form, best practices in responding to audits, and recent decisions from OSC and OCAHO.

Featured Topics

  • The New I-9 Form, Including Changes for STEM OPT Classification

  • Completing I-9s for Remote Hires
