Comment

Alienating Latinos

An opinion piece in Washington Post by an ally of 24 years of President Obama argues "Obama must lead the charge for immigration reform by telling Americans the truth: that tough, fair and compassionate immigration reform is necessary for America's economy and national security, and not just for Latino voters. He must also, somehow, convince Latinos that he really does feel their pain."

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by writing to editor@ilw.com.


Focus

Proliferation of E-Verify

Tuesday, March 9 is the deadline for the Thursday, March 11 phone session of "Employer Compliance For Experts" with speakers Patrick Shen, Ronald "Alan" Atkinson, Don Crocetti, Cynthia Lange, Priscilla H. Muhlenkamp, Michael Patrick, Shannon Slattery, Jennifer Sultan and Allen Vanscoy. The curriculum is as follows:

In today's heightened enforcement environment, the federal government and an increasing number of state governments are requiring employers to participate in E-Verify, an electronic employment eligibility program. Beginning September 8, 2009, many federal contractors and their subcontractors are required to begin using E-Verify. In addition, the government is utilizing sophisticated data-mining techniques to monitor employer usage and to scrutinize employers' compliance with the complex terms of participation. Program highlights include:

  • Obama Administration's emphasis on E-Verify and impact on federal contractors
  • Trends among state legislation requiring use of E-Verify and complications for employers with multi-state presence
  • Liabilities that may result from enforcement of new monitoring and compliance regulations
Tuesday, March 9 is the deadline to sign up. For more info, including speaker bios, detailed curriculum, and registration information, please see: Online: http://www.ilw.com/seminars/201002.shtm. Fax form: http://www.ilw.com/seminars/201002.pdf. Don't delay, sign up today.
