Is Your Company Ready for an ICE I-9 Audit or an ICE Raid?
Presented by Bruce Buchanan, Attorney, Sebelist Buchanan Law PLLC

ICE is substantially increasing is worksite enforcement operations. It is increasing its I-9 Audits by 500% this year. ICE has re-established ICE raids of employers after a 10-year absence. Penalties for substantive paperwork violations have doubled increasing from a range of $110-$1,100 to $224-$2,235. 

So, employers need to be prepared for ICE. The best way is undergoing regular internal I-9 audits, establishing a written Immigration Compliance policy, and implementing E-Verify (did you know it is now required In Tennessee for employers with 50 or more employees?). Join Bruce, author of the book, I-9 and E-Verify Handbook, as he discusses this topic and offers solutions that work for his clients.
