The Trump administration’s immigration focus places employers in the crosshairs. Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) dramatically increased the number of I-9 audits and worksite investigations – from 402 in 2007 to more than 5,000 last year. In March 2019, the administration restarted the Social Security Administration’s “no-match” notice process, which has immigration compliance ramifications for employers. In May 2019, ICE announced a new program deputizing local law enforcement officers to help enforce immigration laws.

Don’t wait for ICE to come knocking to address these risks. Developing a robust Immigration Compliance Program helps reduce the risks associated with ICE’s stepped-up worksite enforcement.

This interactive and cost-effective workshop will help you do just that! During this workshop, we will provide your entire human resource team with step-by-step instructions for developing an Immigration Compliance Program, including:

  • Completing I-9s
  • Using E-Verify
  • Responding to “no match” notices
  • Auditing and correcting existing I-9s
  • Responding to an ICE audit or raid

You will also receive the following written materials to help implement your program:

  • Immigration Compliance Policy
  • No-Match Notice Response Policy
  • Letters to manage the no-match process
  • A checklist and spreadsheet to manage and document I-9 audits
  • An ICE audit or raid response plan

All workshops are from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Your entire team can attend for $500. And because we offer this training through a webinar as well, this is an efficient way to train your entire team, regardless of where they are located.

We also offer private trainings for individual employers beginning at $1,500. Contact Mike Palmer at for more information about this option.
