Good, and ethical, corporate compliance standards using certified outside auditors, coupled with advance preparation, can reduce potential exposure and ensure that an employer does not violate immigration anti-discrimination laws.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 12, 2012
Charles H. Kuck, Managing Partner of Kuck Immigration Partners LLC, http://www.immigration.net, will be co-presenting a session on ethical issues for employers and lawyers in dealing with I-9 compliance and I-9 audits, on Friday, April 20th, 2012, at Stanford Law School's "Second Annual Worksite Immigration Compliance Symposium," in Palo Alto, California.
The Symposium is sponsored by the Rock Center for Corporate Governance and American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) Northern California and Santa Clara Valley divisions and the Silicon Valley National Association of Corporate Directors (SVNACD). This event is open to the public but advanced registration is required.
Just one of the critical topics The Symposium will examine, the "Executive Ethical Compliance Training" session will discuss emerging corporate risks and liabilities related to I-9/Workplace Compliance and the ethics challenges that employers face during the process of verifying the work eligibility of all new employees as required under the I-9 provisions of the Federal Law or when subjected to an audit by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
The session is co-presented by Charles Kuck, immigration attorney and immediate past National President of AILA, and Carl Hampe, Partner at Baker & McKenzie, and is moderated by Charles M. Miller, Principal, Miller Law Offices.
"ICE is stepping up its policy of targeting employers for Form I-9 errors, putting more employers in its cross hairs for seemingly minor issues," said Charles Kuck. "Good, and ethical, corporate compliance standards using certified outside auditors, coupled with advance preparation, can reduce potential exposure and ensure that an employer does not violate immigration anti-discrimination laws."
