BLOOMFIELD HILLS — JobApp, the talent acquisition and management system for companies with a decentralized workforce, announced the release of its newest paper, “Hiring and I-9 Compliance: What You Need to Know in Changing Times,” available for free download now.
Based on reporting of recent trends, interviews with experts in I-9 compliance and hiring processes, and the uniquely dedicated experience of JobApp in this area, this paper highlights:
* The changing face of I-9 compliance, audits and penalties over the past few year
* Why many companies — especially those with a decentralized workforce — are wise to take a fresh look at what those trends mean for them
* Why an automated I-9 management system for hiring makes sense in response
* What you need to know if you’re considering an automated I-9 system
For example, an I-9 audit no longer needs to start with a scheduled visit from ICE, says Sharon Mehlman, an immigration lawyer and partner in the law firm Larrabee, Mehlman, Albi, Coker LLP.
“Now, ICE can just take a tip from an employee, a hiring-discrimination complaint through the Department of Justice or some other whistle-blower action,” Mehlman said. “The bottom line is that today, no company is above an ICE audit.”
“Hiring and I-9 Compliance: What You Need to Know in Changing Times” adds further value to the discussion about automated I-9 solutions by addressing head-on some of the myths about them and what to look for in an automated I-9 solution. The paper also explains why even with a paperless I-9 solution, a company can sometimes fail to comply with the federal law.
“An integrated and automated I-9 solution further takes the pain — and the paper — out of I-9 management and compliance by offering users a comprehensive online completion, signature and storage system,” said Blake Helppie, CEO of JobApp.
