Upcoming Programs
Date: Tue. May 13, 2014
Topic: ====================================
Members: $10 - - - Prospective Members & Guests: $20 ====================================


Ronda Harkey, Partner at Orgain Bell & Tucker, LLP returns to MC-SHRM for another informative session. She will address the common pitfalls employers face in the completion of the Form I-9 and problems associated with the verification of employee identification and work authorization documents.

Ronda will introduce the federal E-Verify program and its requirements as well as identify frequent problems encountered by current users of the program. Lastly, she will discuss the rising number of Immigration Customs & Enforcement (ICE) audits of companies around the country, the targeted industries, and how company representatives should respond in the case of an audit. We'll discuss recent audit trends and how to best work with ICE officers during an audit.

Learning Objectives:

1. Provide HR professionals with information to utilize or to train others in their department during the new hire and re-verification process when completing the required Form I-9 and document verification

2. Assist HR professionals in assessing whether their company should participate in E-Verify and to provide information on potential problems with the E-Verify system to current users

3. Discuss ICE audits regarding the information provided to promote awareness of this growing trend, what to expect, how to prepare, what steps to take if an audit occurs, and how much the company could be liable for in penalties should they be found noncompliant.

Ronda Butler Harkey represents multinational companies across the globe. She counsels and trains human resource managers and employees on corporate immigration compliance plans, contract language, and needed company policies to achieve ongoing compliance with ever-changing immigration legislation and regulation. Mrs. Harkey is a frequent speaker on the topic of immigration compliance and has served on the State Bar of Texas Committee on Laws Relating to Immigration & Nationality providing valuable feedback to lawmakers and agency representatives.

This program has been submitted for approval for 1.00 (General) recertification credit hour toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification through the HR Certification Institute (HRCI).
