President Donald Trump has made it clear, through Executive Orders, that he intends to enforce employment verification laws more rigorously and is proposing 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 impacts all employers across the country, and the Trump administration vows to assess millions in civil penalties for I-9 violations and employment discrimination. Small businesses across the country already have been assessed thousands of dollars in civil penalties for I-9 violations. Some companies are losing their business licenses and are being squeezed out of the bid process for government contracts.

With these pitfalls facing unwary employers, two of the nation’s top business immigration and employment/labor attorneys, Bruce E. Buchanan and Greg Siskind, have written The I-9 and E-Verify Handbook: A Guide to Employment Verification and Compliance, which serves as a one-stop shop for those who need to know the intricacies of the latest I-9 form, the E-Verify process, and anti-discrimination laws and regulations governing the U.S. workforce. The book provides a thorough overview of the government’s system for verifying that employers are not hiring individuals who lack the legal authorization to work in the United States.

The Handbook is organized in an easy-to-understand, question-and-answer format with illustrations, checklists, and sample documents, which give the reader the tools to implement and improve any immigration compliance program. Because Buchanan and Siskind have represented U.S. employers in immigration, employment/labor law, and worksite compliance, they have written The I-9 and E-Verify Handbook as a guide for human-resource professionals, recruiters, attorneys, and even government officials who need to understand the array of compliance-related statutes and regulations.

Bruce E. Buchanan is a founding partner at Sebelist Buchanan Law PLLC with offices in Nashville and Atlanta.
