With their heavy turnover, multiple locations, and frequent dependence on under-18 and seasonal employees, the food service and hospitality industries have unique compliance challenges that can make I-9s especially prone to errors.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 16, 2011
Brian Fancher, Director of Best Practices at Tracker Corp, developer of the most innovative Form I-9 & E-Verify compliance software and immigration case management system, will present a session on "How to Prevent E-Verify and Form I-9 Mistakes in Restaurant and Hospitality Onboarding" at the 2011 Meeting of the Minds Restaurant Recruiting Conference, on September 20th in Dallas, TX.
The restaurant and hospitality industries have been hit hard by recent I-9 audit raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Over the past two years, the I-9 forms and hiring practices of Chipotle, Subway, Krispy Kreme, McDonalds, Pei Wei and Sizzler have come under scrutiny, often leading to multi-thousand dollar fines and unfavorable press coverage.
In this session, Brian Fancher will explain the critical I-9 and E-Verify mistakes most common in these industries and how to prevent them. These best practices are essential for any HR personnel who handle the hiring and onboarding practices of Form I-9 processing and E-Verify. After this meeting, attendees will be better able to properly complete Form I-9s and E-Verify, prevent discrimination cases due to improper documentation requests, and avoid or mitigate stiff fines in case of an ICE raid by maintaining Good Faith measures.
"With their heavy turnover, multiple locations, and frequent dependence on under-18 and seasonal employees, the food service and hospitality industries have unique compliance challenges that can make I-9s especially prone to errors," says Brian Fancher. "Demanded more and more by state laws and public pressure, E-Verify adds to these complexities."
Brian Fancher has worked as a legal professional at one of the nation’s highest volume immigration law firms and served as General Manager of a major retail chain. As Tracker Corp's Director of Product and Best Practices, he trains organizations on how to comply with I-9 rules and monitors the ever-changing E-Verify and I-9 best practices landscape.
