Fragomen Webcast - Immigration Developments in the Trump Administration: The Coming Increase in Worksite Enforcement

The Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has announced a dramatic increase in agency worksite enforcement efforts. This announcement comes shortly after ICE imposed a penalty of 95 million dollars against Asplundh Tree Expert Co. This penalty, one of the largest ever imposed, developed from a worksite investigation that began as an ordinary I-9 audit. The increase in worksite enforcement is an expected component of the Trump administration’s overall immigration enforcement efforts and fits into the administration’s “Buy American and Hire American” executive order. It is more important than ever for employers to develop effective I-9 compliance policies and procedures and ensure they are included as a critical element in the corporate compliance program.

This Fragomen webcast discusses the current challenges in I-9 compliance, including:
· Dramatic Expansion of ICE worksite enforcement
· Increased I-9 Penalties
· ICE worksite enforcement investigations
· Recent developments and trends in ICE enforcement actions
· Developing a comprehensive and effective I-9 compliance program and incorporating the program into your corporate compliance efforts
