Rockford Chamber of Commerce recently issued the following announcement.
Join us for the Wednesday, May 9 Breakfast Buzz featuring Penelope M Lechtenberg and Brett Strand as they present: Business Compliance 101
The purpose of this presentation is to alert employers to the risk and realities of government immigration-related audits and raids. It is our experience that many employers are not aware that the government regularly makes surprise visits to employers demanding I-9 and other materials, and that even fewer employers know what actually happens during those audits. This presentation will provide background information regarding employer obligations with respect to immigration and work authorization, and will then walk through an actual audit, including what information may be requested, who may be impacted, and which consequences are possible. The anatomy of immigration raids on employers will also be discussed. Our firm is uniquely expert in this area, possessing years of experience and real-world practice in employment and immigration law, including guiding employers through all phases of these government compliance actions.
