AGC to Host Webinars on E-Verify & Form I-9 Compliance April 28 & 29
Deceptively considered one of the simplest forms completed during the hiring process, Form I-9 is often riddled with errors that could place your company in jeopardy if audited by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Its companion, E-Verify, often leaves employers confused about what to do when an employee's documents may not check out. To help construction contractors avoid the pitfalls of non-compliance, AGC is hosting two webinars in April. An April 28 webinar will address the real deal on Form I-9, and an April 29 webinar will address issues surrounding E-Verify. Both webinars are ideal for project managers, superintendents, office managers, HR staff, or anyone who signs Form I-9 and/or uses E-Verify.
On April 28, attendees will learn to avoid the most common mistakes made while completing Form I-9 plus best practices for completing the form on new hires before the first day of work, photocopying documents, dealing with missing forms, handling remote hires and re-hires, and using the Spanish-language Form I-9. On April 29, attendees will learn about recent changes and updates in E-Verify plus best practices for overcoming the particular challenges associated with using E-Verify in the construction industry. Dave Basham, Management & Program Analyst for the U.S. U.S Citizenship & Immigration Services Division of DHS, will be the presenter on both days.
Both webinars are ideal for project managers, superintendents, office managers, HR staff, or anyone who signs Form I-9 and/or uses E-Verify on behalf of the company.
