Immigration-Related Compliance Assistance Training for Employers to Take Place in September-October
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will be conducting immigration-related compliance assistance webinars for employers throughout the month of September, while AGC plans live, in-person training for employers at its 10th Annual HR Professionals Conference. Both events promise to be interactive, giving participants the opportunity to ask questions of the presenters.
USCIS’s webinar topics include:
- Form I-9: Employment Eligibility Verification – an overview of the Form I-9 process, including step-by-step instructions on how to complete each section, retention and storage;
- E-Verify Self Check – an overview of the new “Self Check” program, a voluntary service that allows individuals to check their own employment eligibility;
- E-Verify Overview – an overview of the E-Verify program, including how the program works, key features, how to enroll, employer responsibilities, and a demonstration of the program;
- Federal Contractor E-Verify – a general overview of the E-Verify program for federal contractors that have been awarded a federal contract with the FAR E-Verify clause; and
- E-Verify for Existing Users – a detailed overview of the E-Verify program specifically for existing users. Topics include Form I-9, user roles, case alerts, how to handle a tentative nonconfirmation and common user mistakes.
Pre-registration is not required, but a maximum of 125 participants will be allowed to log-in to each webinar. A complete schedule and log-in instructions are available on the USCIS website.
For those who prefer live, in-person training, AGC’s 10th Annual HR Professionals Conference, which will be held October 4-5 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Downtown Kansas City, Missouri, will offer two sessions dedicated to immigration-related issues. Ken Lovesee, a DHS special agent, will conduct a session called Before You Sign Form I-9. This session is a hands-on document review workshop that will train employers on ways to identify fraudulent documents used to complete Form I-9. While this session is intended to education HR professionals, it also doubles as a train-the-trainer session, offering techniques that HR professionals can take back to project superintendents or other field workers who actually complete and sign Form I-9 on behalf of the company. In addition, for the first time, AGC will host a Federal Contracting Compliance Construction HR Workshop, which will be held October 5-6 at the same location. During the workshop, immigration lawyer David Whitlock of Elarbee Thompson will discuss E-Verify for Federal Contractors.
