Greenberg Traurig’s Rebecca B. Schechter to Speak on The Latest Guidance in Conducting Internal Form I-9 Audits

MCLEAN, VA – Oct. 27, 2016 – Rebecca B. Schechter, of counsel in the Business Immigration and Compliance Practice at global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, will speak during the Knowledge Group’s two-hour live webcast titled, “Understanding the Latest Guidance in Conducting Internal Form I-9 Audits,” from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. EST Nov. 18, 2016. 

In December 2015, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices released the much-anticipated guidance for employers conducting internal Form I-9 audits. The guidance was issued to help employers structure and implement internal audits consistent with the relevant requirements of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

The course will provide an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as recent updates on the latest guidance in conducting internal I-9 audits. Additionally, the panel will present their thoughts and opinions on how to best comply with these guidelines.

Key topics include: purpose and scope of I-9 audits; the I-9 audit process; charges of discrimination in internal form I-9 audit; corrections to deficient I-9 forms; internal audit considerations; and identifying and avoiding discriminatory internal audits.
