ICE Audits – What All Employers Should Fear?
August 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm$159
In this webinar, I will discuss the importance of being ready for a Notice of Inspection (NOI) – also referred to as audit by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), what happens when an ICE audit occurs, and an employer’s potential liability for I-9 errors discovered by ICE in the audit. The webinar will discuss the need for preventive maintenance – an employer performing an internal I-9 audit – which should discover many of the I-9 errors and correct them, if possible. We will discuss what happens if an employer is chosen for an ICE audit. There are certain steps that the audit will take –production of existing I-9 forms, after remediating as many errors as possible (though sometimes ICE will not accept remediation performed after ICE delivers the NOI), assertion of legal arguments on why any alleged errors are not I-9 violations, negotiating with ICE on a reduction of the proposed penalty, and litigation before OCAHO, if the negotiations are unsuccessful.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND
In the new Trump administration, it is anticipated that ICE will crackdown on undocumented workers. One way to do this is to conduct more I-9 inspections by ICE and even detaining undocumented workers for possible deportation. Second, the penalty for I-9 violations and employment of undocumented workers has recently greatly increased; thus, the penalties for these violations is going to be much higher. Currently, it is not uncommon for employers to receive penalties of over $100,000. Thus, there is plenty to fear about ICE inspections in a Trump administration.
This webinar will cover a number of areas, including: internal I-9 audits; ICE audits; what is a substantive violation; what is a technical violation; why is the difference between the two types of violations important; how should an employer respond to an ICE audit; how should I-9 errors be corrected or remediated; and potential consequences and penalties from an ICE audit.
The objectives of the webinar are to demonstrate the necessity of internal I-9 audits, how to correct I-9 errors, how to respond to an ICE audit; how to prevent significant liability from an ICE audit; and the need for legal counsel throughout the ICE audit.
