I-9 Workshop on August 20th

The attorneys at Cascadia, in coordination with the Bellingham Chamber of Commerce, will be presenting an I-9 Workshop on August 20th. The workshop is free for anyone to attend. It will take place at the Bellingham Regional Chamber of Commerce, at 119 N. Commercial St., Ste 110, Bellingham. The workshop will be from 8:00 to 9:30 AM.  Here is a link to the Chamber’s announcement.

The purpose of the workshop is to assist businesses and their HR teams with worksite compliance for immigration issues, with a focus on I-9 completion and management, social security no-match letters, and ICE enforcement actions.

In the past year, we’ve seen an uptick in the number of businesses that receive Notices of Inspections for their I-9s. ICE can demand to see a company to produce all their I-9 records within 3 business days, which can surprise businesses sometimes. As it is said, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

We expect that attendees will be able to walk away from the workshop better prepared to address workplace compliance issues at their businesses.

We are also available to discuss worksite compliance concerns with businesses, by appointment.
