The Key Immigration Issues Facing Employers in 2013
Employers will face many tough issues as politicians ponder immigration reform. Immigration reform must balance the demand for immigration enforcement with the need for foreign labor to fulfill a growing yet fragile economy. While any change can be difficult, immigration reform provides employers with various opportunities. For example, the release of a new Form I-9 provides an excellent opportunity for employers to provide additional training and re-enforce compliance in their organizations.
Employers have been put on notice for the past four years that immigration obligations will be placed on them through investigations carried out by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). As a result of these investigations Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has repeatedly issued fines of over $1,000,000 for employers with violations of their immigration compliance programs. With immigration reform, employers are likely to see an increase in the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) audits, larger fines and a likely national expansion of E-Verify. In addition, I-9 investigations will also trigger other investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission, Department of Labor and the Office of Special Counsel. Companies will be able to use this time to restructure outdated immigration programs and policies to address issues of employee loyalty, pathways to permanent residence and the use of technology to manage complex immigration programs.
This program will update employers on the latest news on immigration reform, including best practices for corporate governance and practical suggestions based upon examples from various industry leaders.
