AILA Announces New I-9 and E-Verify Handbook

One of the leading business-immigration lawyers in the U.S., Rodney Malpert holds the title of partner at the Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy law firm in Phoenix, Arizona. Among his professional activities, Rodney Malpert has served as the editor of the American Immigration Lawyers Association Annual Conference Nationality Law Handbook since 2008.

In a recent press release, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) announced the publication of The I-9 and E-Verify Handbook: A Guide to Employment Verification and Compliance. Written by top employment and business immigration attorneys Bruce E. Buchanan and Greg Siskind, the handbook shares vital information related to the E-Verify process, the I-9 form, and anti-discrimination regulations and laws governing the U.S. labor force. It gives extra attention to the system the U.S. government uses to verify employers who have hired individuals with the necessary legal paperwork to work in the country.

The publication comes on the heels of new executive orders from President Trump. The president has stated an intent to enforce employment verification laws better. Additionally, the president has also proposed hiring 10,000 Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers to do so, and it appears likely the expanded taskforce will focus much of its activities on I-9 audits.
