With changing and stringent regulations in place, businesses must take extra care to ensure they hire employees legally authorized to work in the United States. Achieving compliance, including filing and confirming legal authorization, is a time-consuming and labor intensive process. The necessary process involves filling out Form I-9 and comparing data to government records through E-Verify. With recent changes in E-Verify procedures, companies need to make sure their hiring and recordkeeping practices are completely in line with the latest developments.

During this complimentary webinar, Shannon Leska, senior manager of HRAS and Shared Services for Ann Inc., will discuss how her company manages the I-9 process. She will provide tips for monitoring the timeliness of filling out the required form and share some best practices for training field managers on proper I-9 procedures. Leska will discuss how updates to E-Verify procedure impact compliance, including the new requirement to manually close all cases. Dave Fowler, vice president of Product Strategy at TALX, will join Leska to provide new federal guidance on E-Verify and expand on the recent changes, including E-Verify’s new RIDE, Self Check and Photo Matching features.

Attendees will learn how these new changes impact hiring managers; how to make a new hire an ally for timely completion of Form I-9; how manually closing E-Verify cases impacts internal costs; how to minimize the cost of compliance; and whether employees should be paid for completing new hire paperwork, including the Form I-9.

“I-9 Compliance and Recent E-Verify Changes” is part of an ongoing series of complimentary webinars presented by TALX industry experts.
