On May 7, 2015, Newton Chu will be speaking at a seminar presented by the Hawaii Employers Council on I-9 Compliance: Turning the Deceptively Difficult into Simply Understandable.
Noncompliance with the deceptively difficult two-page Form I-9 can result in hefty fines. For instance, in 2010, Abercrombie and Fitch was fined $1,047,110 for I-9 violations even though the company did not knowingly hire unauthorized aliens.
In this half-day seminar, Newton Chu will address issues such as:
- What are common employer mistakes?
- How should employers correct mistakes and omissions?
- How can employers avoid discrimination claims?
- What are the recordkeeping requirements (including whether electronic recordkeeping)?
Mr. Chu will also dedicate time to answer participants' questions such as:
- How should employers handle employees with expired green cards?
- What are best practices in processing remote employees?
- What steps should employers take when an employee presents documents with different names?
- May employers use a signature stamp to sign Section 2?
- Will an employer's "good faith efforts" protect it from legal liability?
- How does immigration reform proposals impact the Form I-9 verification process?
