I-9 Forms and No-Match Letters – Issues in Employment Immigration
Luncheon Roundtable (lunch provided)
Course #: LEB08
Tuesday, Dec. 4, noon–2 p.m.
MBA, 20 West St., Boston
Matthew Lee, managing partner of Tocci, Goss & Lee PC will discuss the employer’s burden to comply with I-9 Employment Verification procedures required of all W-2 employees on the first day of employment. The I-9 Employment Verification regulations are a mandatory tool for employers to verify that their new employees are authorized to work in the United States. Further, Lee will discuss post-hiring issues, such as the receipt of a Social Security Administration (SSA) “mismatch letter” informing the employer that an employee’s social security number does not match SSA records and how an employer should deal with similar post-hiring inconsistent information. He will discuss the new SSA “mismatch letter” regulation in detail.

This training session will be held in a computer lab setting that will provide participants with the use of a computer and online access to Casemaker. Casemaker has had many new features added, including:
- CaseCheck: an enhanced case law search results function;
- Database availability for all 50 states; and
- Nationwide collections of combined Supreme Court and ethics opinions
Additionally, Casemaker Version 2.0 has been released, in testing phase. This new software will eventually replace the current system. MBA members can access Version 2.0 to get a feel for the system, before it becomes the default searching option.
NOTE: Because space at Casemaker trainings is limited, online enrollment is not available. To register for a training session, call MBA Member Services at (617) 338-0530 or toll-free at (877) 676-6500.
