Free I-9 Review

 

Throughout the conference, our immigration attorneys will be available to provide free Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification advice. Following USCIS’s announcement that employers must continue to use the current version of Form I-9 which expired on March 31, 2016 until the new version takes effect, employers should be prepared for key changes to the Form I-9. We expect the new version of Form I-9 to be released very soon.

If you are interested in consulting with one of our immigration attorneys at the conference regarding I-9 form completion and remediation, please feel free to bring redacted copies of your I-9 forms to the conference (please redact the last names and Social Security numbers of the employees). You can also email redacted copies of the forms in advance to Nadine.Trinh@Jacksonlewis.com with your contact information and we will have printed copies of the forms ready for your real-time consultation with us at the conference.
