The Immigration Reform and Control Act (“IRCA”) went into effect on November 6, 1986.

For more than thirty years now, employers have been required to verify – through the preparation of form I-9 – that each new hire has authorization to work in the United States. Employers who fail to comply with the I-9 requirements are subject to substantial civil fines and even potential criminal liability. But potential liability for violations of IRCA go far beyond fines for failing to complete the I-9 form completely or on time.

The Immigrant and Employee Rights (IER) section of the U.S. Justice Department (formerly known as the Office of Special Counsel for Unfair Immigration-Related Employment Practices) in addition to ordering back pay and reinstatement has levied fines into the hundreds of thousands of dollars on employers who – often inadvertently – take actions during the I-9 process which violate IRCA.

This session provides an introduction to important immigration laws and concepts that attorneys representing employers and employees should understand and communicate to their clients.
