Even prior to the government mandate taking effect, I recommend the use of the E-Verify system as a best practice for verifying the identities of employees and ensuring government compliance
Detroit, MI (PRWEB) August 19, 2009
Effective Sept. 8, 2009, the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) E-Verify electronic employment verification system will be required for many government contractors and subcontractors. According to numbers released to the Center for Immigration Studies by the Department of Homeland Security, E-Verify is now being used to determine work authorization for one in four new hires in the United States.
nowHIRE.com will host a webinar to shed light on the implications of the E-Verify mandate on U.S. businesses and the importance of being Form I-9 compliant. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 26, 2009 at 11 a.m. Pacific time (2 p.m. Eastern time).
During the webinar, Clark Hill’s Michael P. Nowlan will provide an overview of I-9 compliance and E-Verify, including the importance of automating I-9 processing, the latest legal updates about E-Verify, who is impacted by E-Verify and how employers can avoid penalties and fines.
Nowlan is the co-leader of Clark Hill’s Immigration Practice Group. Clark Hill is a full-service law firm. Nowlan’s immigration practice includes representation of Fortune 500 companies, religious institutions, scientists and engineers, and other professionals and their families as they plan for U.S. entry. Nowlan's expertise also includes in-depth knowledge of all business and family immigration, nonimmigrant visas, and the permanent residence and naturalization processes. Nowlan continues to be an advocate for immigrant rights before immigration officials on a regional and national level and within Immigration Court as a trial attorney.
“Even prior to the government mandate taking effect, I recommend the use of the E-Verify system as a best practice for verifying the identities of employees and ensuring government compliance,” said Nowlan. “Organizations should use a Web-based I-9 compliance system that helps them streamline the E-Verify process and avoid I-9 errors.”
During the webinar, nowHIRE will demo their I-9 Comply System with the optional E-Verify component. The E-Verify Program from nowHIRE integrates with the federal government’s E-Verify program and allows organizations to view and directly submit data to the federal E-Verify system. Organizations are able to see results immediately and take the necessary actions. nowHIRE is a federally approved designated agent, and nowHIRE's E-Verify Program is a government-certified program.
