Intersection of Illinois Employment and Immigration Law

OnDemand Webinar (86 minutes)

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement intends to issue more than 500 I-9 notices of inspection nationwide. The E-verify system still has flaws. Employers are subject to civil and criminal penalties for hiring unauthorized aliens or, conversely, for committing unfair immigration related employment practices. This OnDemand Webinar will help you understand the U.S. immigration system, provide updated information on verification of employment authorization, and will discuss best practices for demonstrating good faith in maintaining I-9 Forms. The program will provide an update on the status of the Illinois statute challenging the E-verify program and discuss the employment law rights of foreign-born workers. Finally, this program will review selected Illinois statutory and case developments in the employment law context.
