Course Description

The I-9 form - byzantine and requiring significant attention to detail - is often the bane of a human resource department’s existence. For attorneys who advise business clients, providing helpful and timely advice on this difficult and error prone form can be a great way to supply additional value to clients.

This program will discuss I-9 basics, including best practices for completion, reverification, retention and training. The course will review I-9 error correction methods, how to legally communicate with employees regarding corrections, and the Department of Justice’s latest interpretations of the I-9 related anti-discrimination provisions.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review I-9 basics, including common missteps
  2. Advise clients on best practices for completion
  3. Discuss current DOJ guidance
