What Employers Must Know About the 2017 Form I-9

Duration: 90 minutes

Speaker: Sharon Mehlman



Webinar Description

On November 14, 2016, USCIS released a new, revised Form I-9 which must be used by employers by January 22, 2017.  The Form I-9 is used by all employers to verify the identity and work authorization of their employees. There are several changes to the new form and guidance (not to mention several more pages than before), and it is important that you are fully aware of all of the nuances before you start to use it.  In addition, it is expected that I-9 and E-Verify enforcement will increase under the Trump Administration, so this is also a good time to make sure that you start using the new form correctly and that you have the best compliance program in place.  Please join experienced immigration lawyer Sharon Mehlman of Mehlman Barnes LLP for this webinar.  Ms. Mehlman will review all of the latest information on this new form.  There will be plenty of time for questions.  If you are involved in the hiring process, this seminar is for you.
