The Immigration Big Picture and I-9

Workshop 1 | Thursday, May 11 | 2:45 - 4:15

Our immigration law experts, Russell Ford and Michael Murray from the Ford Murray law firm in Portland, undertake a two-fold task in this workshop: 1) to bring you up to date on the shifting world of immigration issues and the law – shifts that will likely be on the front burner by the May 2017 convention; and 2) to keep you in proper I-9 compliance given the recent changes in law and increased enforcement by the government. What’s the status of mandatory e-verify? What about the guest worker rules and the continuation or non-continuation of Obama administration executive orders? And regardless of the political waters, how do you properly complete the I-9 and develop strategies for ensuring ongoing compliance? Our goal is to help you avoid increased penalties for I-9 infractions, whether resulting from employing individuals not legally authorized to work or whether resulting from mere “paperwork” errors. You’ll leave this session with the tools to conduct an internal self-audit and correct deficiencies in existing I-9s.
