In 2021, Facebook paid an unprecedented $4.75 million civil penalty to the Department of Justice for discriminatory immigration-related practices. This unprecedented case has caused employers who sponsor foreign nationals heightened concern when undertaking a new immigration sponsorship. Other recent cases have involved E-Verify discrimination, I-9 Document Abuse, and a continued emphasis on protecting US workers by flagging employer sponsorship practices that favor H-1B and other foreign workers. In 2022, we are expecting a new I-9 form and the possibility of remote verification becoming a permanent fixture of I-9 compliance. U.S. immigration authorities continue to conduct worksite enforcement actions including I-9 audits; immigration-related discrimination investigations; and H, L and F visa site visit checks. Decisions employers make today could have unanticipated consequences for foreign national employees and company obligations to the Department of Labor (DOL), United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Enforcement actions can result in civil fines, back-pay awards, disgorgement of profits and revocation of visa application approvals. In this one hour webinar, attendees will hear about the latest in immigration enforcement trends, as well as learn I-9 compliance and immigration-related discrimination basics, best practices for site visits and strategies for responding to I-9 audits, and immigration-related discrimination investigations.
