PLEASANTON, Calif. (PRWEB) February 13, 2018
Smart ERP Solutions (SmartERP), a leading provider of Enterprise Business Applications solutions and services, will host the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) - United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), for a complimentary educational webinar with DHS analyst David Basham. Basham will be presenting: "What’s New with Form I-9 and E-Verify in 2018," covering updated requirements for Form I-9 and its companion E-Verify. This live interactive one-hour event is open to all U.S. employers and will take place on Thursday, February 15 at 10:00 AM (PST)/1:00PM (EST). Registration for this complimentary webinar can be accessed here.
Understanding the complexities of Form I-9 requirements can be difficult, and non-compliance can be detrimental to any organization, as witnessed by many employers across the U.S. that have received substantial fines and penalties due to their lack of compliance. Form I-9 fines have recently increased, and the Department of Justice has recently settled with several employers over discriminatory conduct, making it more imperative than ever for employers to ensure that they are meeting compliance requirements for the new Form I-9.
Commissioned by the U.S. federal government in 1997 (under the name Basic Pilot Program), E-Verify was developed as an advanced means of discouraging undocumented immigration. This is accomplished through a quick comparison of each applicant's Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9, with the data stored in government records.
Attendees of the webinar will be provided with a unique opportunity to engage directly with Dave Basham, a Form I-9 and E-Verify SME that works in the very government division, within USCIS, that houses both programs. The webinar will provide you with valuable insights, such as information on avoiding discrimination during the hiring process, foreign nationals and completing the I-9, and how to accurately correct a Form I-9. In addition, the webinar will touch upon determining how your organization can use E-Verify, and why it is important that you understand how your organization processes its employees’ Forms I-9.
