Free Webinar Will Examine Employer Best Practices for I-9 Self-Audits

Human Resources (HR) solutions provider EMP Trust and global background screening firm Employment Screening Resources (ESR) – a service offering of ClearStar – will present a free webinar on the topic of “I-9 Self-Audits: Employer Best Practices” from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time / 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time on Wednesday, April 20, 2022.

The webinar will feature speaker Greg Siskind, founder of Siskind Susser, a national immigration firm in Memphis, Tennessee. The webinar moderator will be ESR Vice President of Strategic Growth Dawn Standerwick, a background screening expert with more than 30 years of experience in workforce screening, drug testing, occupational health testing, and HR technologies.

The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) requires all employers to complete a Form I-9 for every employee hired after November 6, 1986. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) conducts audits of an employer’s Form I-9s by serving the employer with a Notice of Inspection (NOI). ICE conducts random audits of businesses of all sizes and in all industries.

The number of I-9 audits conducted by ICE has risen substantially each Fiscal Year for the past few years. For every Form I-9 with an error, ICE will access a fine of up to $2,292. Fines can be higher if ICE believes the employer knowingly hired an employee not authorized to work in the United States. The webinar “I-9 Self-Audits: Employer Best Practices” will discuss:

  • Why conduct self-audits?
  • Questions to answer before the audit begins.
  • Who should do the audit: Do it yourself vs. a law firm?
  • The self-audit checklist.
  • Acting on the findings.

While an I-9 Self-Audit is not mandated by law, it is employed by organizations as a best practice to help manage I-9 compliance. The purpose is to find I-9s that are incomplete, missing, or have unresolved issues. With only a notice of three (3) days before an inspection, it is advised companies correct all issues by conducting an internal audit.

Speaker Siskind is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association’s (AILA) Board of Governors and Vice Chair of the International Bar Association’s Immigration and Nationality Law Committee. He has written seven books on immigration law topics, including the new AILA Cookbook. In 2020, he was awarded the Advocacy Award by the AILA.

Moderator Standerwick is the longest serving member of the Board of Directors for the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA), formerly known as the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), and is the organization’s previous chair.
