With our advice and support, you can be secure in the knowledge that you are complying with all requirements of U.S. immigration law, and be confident of the ongoing legality and integrity of your HR procedures and the employment eligibility of your staff.
We accomplish this goal through our “immigration risk management” initiative. This system is designed to ensure that you remain compliant with all regulatory requirements and mitigate any errors which may have unintentionally occurred in the past.
In addition, comprehensive reform of the U.S. immigration system is on the horizon for 2013. While we are very excited for the changes that will help alleviate long backlogs and overly cumbersome processes, it is important to realize that all of the proposed immigration legislation contains some kind of enhanced enforcement mechanism. Now is the time to ensure that your company is compliant with all immigration laws as they exist in order to be in a better position when new requirements are enacted.
|Form 1-9 Compliance Review||The Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 is used by employers to verify an employee’s identity and to establish that the worker is eligible to accept employment in the U.S. We can review all of your Form I-9s to ensure compliance and help you create policies that will ensure successful completion in the future.|
|E-Verify Enrollment||E-Verify is an online system that compares information from an employee’s Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to data from U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records to confirm employment eligibility. We can advise you on enrolling in and using this system correctly.|
|HR Training||We provide comprehensive training to HR staff of both small and large organizations. This will assist you in following all necessary legal protocols in recruiting and hiring staff where immigration or visa issues are relevant.|
Worksite enforcement of immigration laws has become increasingly prevalent in recent years. Green and Spiegel U.S. is equipped to support, advise and represent companies and individuals throughout this difficult process.
|Wage & Hour laws||We can assist you with compliance and checking with ‘Wage and Hour’ federal labor laws, which have significant compliance requirements regarding H-1B workers, H-2B workers and PERM applications.|
|FDNS||FDNS (the Office of Fraud Detection and National Security) works to deter and detect immigration benefit fraud. During site visits to employers (often done randomly and without warning), FDNS officers will gather information about your company and your foreign national workforce. We will always remain on the ready should your company have an FDNS visit.|
|Self audits||Similar to managing your I-9 risk, ensuring that your H-1B and PERM files are accurate and up-to-date is an important component of immigration compliance. We can assist you with reviewing these records, correcting deficiencies and preparing for future and on-going proper file maintenance.|
