Don’t be caught off guard by the recently released Form I-9, which has numerous changes and will be required by all employers beginning in May. The new changes come on the heels of a record number of Form I-9 enforcement actions against employers, and a call for even tougher sanctions against employers from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. 

The new form has expanded to two pages, added explanations and changed requirements for employers, further complicating employer compliance efforts. Failure to record a single piece of information can result in fines and penalties. When the failures are egregious, the penalties can include jail time. Failures occur when employers and their human resources staff do not fully understand their obligations under the Form I-9, and the new form only adds to that misunderstanding.

With DHS focusing on employers, and recommending annual Form I-9 training for all employers, Lindquist & Vennum presents a seminar on the new rules, the new form, and ongoing compliance requirements to assist employers with these changing obligations. 

As part of this seminar, you will:

  • Review the changes to the new Form I-9, and how those changes impact your compliance practices
  • Discuss when the new Form I-9 must be used
  • Review the proper step-by-step process for completing a Form I-9 and compare with current practices
  • When to complete, how to store and when to purge Form I-9
  • When to audit your Form I-9 process
  • How to correct errors
  • Tips in the event of a Form I-9 audit or raid

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
