Federal Government Officials: Immigration Compliance and Enforcement
Mount Vernon AB
| Intended Audience: All Levels
This session will bring together policymakers from across the federal agencies to discuss the latest developments with worksite verification and immigration enforcement at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Department of Labor.
With the increase of immigration enforcement actions in the media, employers must spend significant time and energy ensuring that they are operating by the book and aren’t opening themselves up to fines and other penalties. While the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services continue regular site visits related to H-1Bs, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have increased worksite enforcement actions related to worksite verification and Form I-9. Meanwhile, more employers have opted to use E-Verify for increased security. This session will bring together government policymakers from these agencies to discuss the latest worksite enforcement trends and developments.
