The D.C. Bar Pro Bono Program Community Economic Development Project presents: "Nonprofits and the Form I-9: A Webinar to Help Your Nonprofit Understand the Form I-9 and Eligibility Verification."
Does your nonprofit know its responsibilities with respect to employment eligibility verification? The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 requires that the employer verify that all newly-hired employees have the legal right to accept employment in the United States. The I-9 form is provided by the federal government for that purpose. Every employee must complete an I-9 form when the individual is hired, and the employer must verify the employee's identity and legal status to work.
But how does a nonprofit do that? What are the deadlines for completing the Form I-9? What proof of identification is acceptable? What happens if the employee does not provided the needed documentation on time? Is the employer responsible if the form is not filled in correctly, and can an employer be held legally responsible if it refuses to hire an immigrant in order to avoid problems with the Form I-9?
This webinar will answer all of these questions and more. The webinar is designed for executive directors, human resources staff and anyone else responsible for the administration of the nonprofit.
The webinar is free of charge.
