DETROIT, Sept. 28, 2015 -- Designed specifically for recruiting and staffing professionals, I-9 Advantage™ will be hosting a free webinar "FORM I-9 CHALLENGES IN STAFFING." This webinar will focus on providing hiring and staffing professionals guidance for a Form I-9 audit, a better understanding of employment eligibility requirements, and valuable insight towards compliant Form I-9 management.
In recent months several organizations across the U.S. have received damaging fines and penalties due to their lack of compliance with federal Form I-9 and E-Verify regulations. One Staffing organization was fined $227,000 for 243 Form I-9 errors [$935 per form], and another company was fined more than $600,000 for 800 Form I-9 violations [$750 per form]. The bottom line is all companies need to be more diligent with Form I-9 compliance. In order for organizations across the U.S. to avoid similar or hasher ramifications, they must take necessary steps to educate their personnel on how to comply with confusing and complex federal guidelines for employment eligibility and verification.
During the webinar I-9 Advantage will address concerns and challenges that organizations face when attempting to comply with I-9 and E-Verify requirements.
This interactive one hour event will be hosted on October 7, 2015 at 2:00 PM (EST).
