To help employers understand the steps they can take to audit and remediate their Form I-9 processes properly, Equifax Workforce Solutions will present, "Audit Your I-9s, Do it Right: A Primer on I-9 Remediation." While the Form I-9 is just two pages long, the requirements for verifying a new hire's eligibility to work and completing the form are complex, creating room for error and potential fines for the employer. To help identify areas of risk, companies can conduct a self-audit. When they do, they often find many non-compliant I-9s, especially when using a paper-based process.

During this educational webinar, attendees will learn best practices for conducting an internal I-9 audit from Equifax Workforce Solutions I-9 product manager, Chad Whittenberg, and Jackson Lewis, P.C. shareholder, Amy Peck. Drawing on real-world experience assisting companies with their own audits, Peck will discuss common errors to look for in an audit, how to fix problems without inadvertently making matters worse and acceptable approaches for I-9 remediation when errors are found. Attendees will also hear how automation can help employers identify, sort and prioritize errors in a self-audit and develop reports to better assess risk and support I-9 compliance.

Attendees: HR and compliance leaders who are interested in learning how Equifax Workforce Solutions can help their organization more effectively manage I-9 processes are encouraged to attend this highly informative presentation.
