On Wednesday, January 22, 2014 at 1:00 PM EST, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will present a free live webinar for Spanish speaking employers so they can learn about E-Verify and the Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification process in their native language. To attend this webinar, please visit https://connect16.uc.att.com/EventEntry/Websites/?VaccId=uscis&ExEventID=86861068.
According to the USCIS, “U.S. law requires companies to employ only individuals who may legally work in the United States – either U.S. citizens, or foreign citizens who have the necessary authorization.” E-Verify is a free Internet-based system that allows businesses to verify the eligibility of their employees to work in the U.S. to ensure a legal workforce. During the webinar, subject matter experts from the USCIS will discuss:
- The Form I-9 process
- How E-Verify works
- How to enroll
- Employer responsibilities
Participants will also have an opportunity to ask questions. For more information, see the USCIS flyer in Spanish. Additional resource information in Spanish for E-Verify is available at http://www.uscis.gov/E-Verify/Espanol.
