In 2024, employers and HR professionals are navigating the complexities introduced by the new I-9 Form, which has been in effect since late-2023. The revisions to this form have significant implications for the way employers conduct internal audits and make corrections, underscoring the importance of a meticulous approach to compliance.


The changes in the I-9 form are set against the backdrop of the E-Verify NextGen program, which aims to reduce the error rate historically attributed to employer mistakes. While the full impact of the NextGen program remains to be seen, it represents a critical evolution in how I-9 compliance will be managed moving forward.


This webinar, drawing on insights from a former external auditor with extensive experience in reviewing thousands of I-9 forms for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), will provide an in-depth analysis of the current I-9 landscape. Attendees will learn about the specific changes to the I-9 form, understand the common errors that persist despite these changes, and gain knowledge on how to effectively conduct internal audits to mitigate risks associated with I-9 compliance.


The increased enforcement efforts by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), focusing on industries with a higher likelihood of employing unauthorized workers, highlight the urgency for employers to refine their I-9 processes. This session will explore how ICE's shift from random audits to targeted investigations affects employers and how they can prepare for and respond to potential I-9 form violations.


Moreover, the webinar will guide participants through the step-by-step process of preparing, correcting, and auditing the new I-9 form, emphasizing the ongoing regulations and best practices for managing this critical document. Attendees will learn to navigate the correction process efficiently, understand the implications of the new changes, and develop strategies to avoid fines and penalties associated with non-compliance.


By delving into the practical and regulatory aspects of the I-9 form and its auditing process, this webinar aims to equip employers with the tools and knowledge needed to ensure compliance in an era of heightened immigration enforcement and evolving verification technologies.
