I-9 Forms and No-Match Letters – Issues in Employment Immigration

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 inconsistent post-hiring information. He will discuss the new SSA “mismatch letter” regulation in detail.
