California businesses are experiencing an unprecedented rise in ICE enforcement.  As well, with the impending termination of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for citizens of EL Salvador and Honduras, California businesses are understandably concerned about what the future holds for employees from these countries who soon will no longer be eligible for TPS work permits.

Please join us on April 13th as we will discuss the recent enactment of the California Values Act and identify several measures employers should take in order to properly maintain their I-9 files and respond effectively to ICE enforcement measures.

Our topics will include:

  • Introduction on the California Values Act (SB 54 - Also known as the "Sanctuary State Law");
  • Implications of increased immigration enforcement for California businesses;
  • I-9 employer maintenance and steps to prepare and respond to an ICE I-9 audit;
  • Discussion on Temporary Protected Status for citizens of El Salvador and Honduras and immigration alternatives in light of the impending termination of TPS for these countries; and
  • EAD (Work Permit) automatic extensions

The Seminar and Webinar will begin at 12:00 p.m. and end at 1:30 p.m. PST.

Boxed lunches will be provided to those attending in person.

Location:  Conference Room A can be accessed from the main lobby via the first elevator bank left of the Security Console. Take the elevator down to LL and follow the signs to Conference Room A.  You can access the building directly from the Montgomery Street BART station. 

As always, there is no charge for our seminar/webinar.  We hope to see you there!
