Worksite Immigration Compliance Symposium
June 6, 2011 8:15am - 6:30pm
sponsored by the Stanford Rock Center for Corporate Governance and the American Bar Association
About the event: Dozens of large high-profile publicly traded companies and hundreds of other companies have recently undergone extensive, and often expensive, scrutiny at the hands of the Department of Homeland Security. Recent headlines are testament to the increasing impact of administrative sanctions leveled against those employers that err in the process of preparing and maintaining I-9s (the document companies must complete to establish and evidence that employees are eligible to work in the U.S.). In addition to expanded record keeping audits, the ICE Worksite Enforcement Program has increasingly focused on employers that have knowingly hired unauthorized workers using ICE inspections that generate civil and criminal penalties for thousands of noncompliant companies.
This Symposium, in the form of panel discussions and keynotes presented by experts from government, private practice and academia, will explore the trends that underlie this expansion in enforcement activity, describe recently enumerated best practices concerning voluntary employer compliance with DHS verification programs, and evaluate the likely impact this will have on corporate behavior and community relationships with various federal agencies.
Registered symposium attendees will receive a copy of the ABA’s 2011 Immigration Compliance Auditing for Lawyers. This book provides authoritative, step-by-step guidance for conducting immigration compliance audits under the Department of Homeland Security regulations and related employment laws. Charles M. Miller, Marcine A. Seid and S. Christopher Stowe, Jr., the distinguished authors of this ABA best-seller, will serve as moderators for several of the panels. In addition, Paul Virtue, the former INS General Counsel, responsible for the "Virtue Memorandum" concerning the treatment of I-9s in the workplace, will be the Symposium's keynote speaker.View the agenda by clicking here
