The Role of Federal Government Agencies in Immigration Compliance and Employment

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Tonight, I am moderating a program that I put together for the DC Bar entitled, ”The Role of Federal Government Agencies in Immigration Compliance and Employment.”  There will be seven government speakers which I invited to serve as faculty for this event; this is a great opportunity for people to gain a better understanding of the array of government agencies that enforce immigration laws that impact employment and employee rights!

The government speakers include:

On the agenda, the seven government agency representatives will give unique insight into immigration compliance from a government agency perspective, addressing these issues and more: knowingly hiring unauthorized aliens; failure to comply with I-9 employment verification requirements; immigration-related unfair employment practices; immigration-related document fraud and other nonconformities; and the development of the law on National Labor Relations Act remedies for undocumented workers.  Faculty also will discuss broader policy issues, including increased civil fines and criminal sanctions for employers. 

Stay tuned for comments and discussion on this unprecedented event!
