Join Worldwide ERC® at 2:00 PM U.S. Eastern time on 6 June 2019 for this webinar sponsored by Berry Appleman & Leiden LLP.

This webcast offers a unique opportunity to learn directly from two members of the Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER) of the U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division. IER enforces the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 USC § 1324b. This federal law prohibits:

  • Citizenship status discrimination in hiring, firing, or recruitment or referral for a fee;
  • National origin discrimination in hiring, firing, or recruitment or referral for a fee;
  • Unfair documentary practices during the employment eligibility verification, Form I-9 and E-Verify processes; and
  • Retaliation or intimidation.

 

Through this webinar, participants will learn about:

  1. The law IER enforces, including how to avoid employment discrimination based on citizenship status or national origin during hiring and recruitment processes;
  2. Best practices regarding Form I-9 and E-Verify processes and how to avoid unfair documentary practices;
  3. How to handle SSA No-Match letters without running afoul of the INA’s anti-discrimination provision; and
  4. Free resources that help employers comply with federal law.
