Employment Eligibility Verification in a Nutshell

Okay, so it is going to be a BIG nutshell!Every employer needs to think carefully about how they intend to comply with the requirements of IRCA; Employer Sanctions laws are complex, and you could be making costly mistakes without even knowing it. Non-compliance with Form I-9 requirements will result in civil penalties of $110-$1,100 per offense. Each Form I-9 that is not properly completed, stored, maintained/updated, and purged appropriately is counted as a separate offense so fines add up quickly!Compounding the problem is ICE can request all forms for both current employees and all previous employees going back 3 years. Employers who are found to have hired unauthorized workers face fines of $275 – $ 11,000 per incident and a possible prison term of 6 months! Immigration related discrimination carries civil penalties of $250 – $10,000 per incident.And it gets even more complicated! Many U.S. states have enacted additional requirements, some mandating the use of E-Verify, some requiring the completion of additional State issued forms, and most stepping up enforcement and work site inspections.Under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), enacted in 1952:(1) The employer must not knowingly hire or continue to employee any person who is not authorized to work in the U.S. An employer may be liable if he/she knows or should have known that an employee is not authorized to work in the United States. (2) The employer must verify the eligibility of every person hired. The verification requirement applies to EVERY PERSON HIRED.Two major amendments to INA effect employers directly:1. The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), also known as the Employer Sanctions Act, was signed into law by President Ronald Reagan in 1986. This Act makes it illegal for any employer to knowingly hire or recruit persons who do not have authority to work in the United States. The Employer Sanctions Act seeks to discourage illegal immigration by making it difficult for immigrants to find work in the U.S. without proper documentation. IRCA places the responsibility of employment verification solely on the employer. As part of this Act, the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification was introduced. The law makes it mandatory for every employer to screen every new hire for work authorization by accurately completing the Form I-9. The form serves as proof that an employer has verified both the identity and work authorization of the people they have hired.2. The Immigration Act of 1990, includes provisions to prevent document fraud and to prevent discrimination. To discourage document fraud, the Act says a persons cannot knowingly forge, alter or fake documents to satisfy the requirements of U.S. Immigration law. A person cannot use, attempt to use, possess, accept or provide a forged, altered or fake document. To prevent discrimination, the Immigration Act states that employers with 4 or more employees cannot discriminate in hiring, firing, or recruiting based on an individuals national origin or citizenship status. An employer must be be absolutely uniform in conducting the employment authorization verification process to avoid charges of discrimination.The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is responsible for enforcing immigration laws. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), is the investigative branch of DHS. ICE investigates employers to ensure their compliance with Employer Sanctions laws and has the authority to inspect an employers Forms I-9 at any time. Penalties for violating Employer Sanctions laws include fines and criminal sanctions.On April 30, 2009 ICE issued the following statement:Effective immediately, ICE will focus its resources in the enforcement program on the criminal prosecution of employers who knowingly hire illegal workers in order to target the root cause of illegal immigration. Immigration law remains a hot topic with the current administration and in the press. Increased national attention has brought new focus to laws that have gone largely unenforced for over 20 years, catching many employers off guard and unprepared for ICE inspections. Even if your company is fully committed to Form I 9 compliance, Employer Sanctions laws are complex and confusing. Enlisting an expert to manage this complicated process is the best choice for many employers.

Want Health and Fitness in Minutes? Pilates Or Yoga May Be Your Answer

Is lack of time, money, or convenience impeding your weight-loss or fitness regime? If so, Pilates or yoga may be the answer. With today’s busy schedules, most of us may find it difficult to set aside time for fitness and exercise, especially at a costly gym. Pilates and yoga equipment and accessories will save you time and money in achieving your weight-loss and fitness goals with just a few minutes, a few times a week, at your convenience and in the privacy of your home.Frequently referred to as mind-body exercises, Pilates and yoga aid in increasing flexibility and joint movement; improving balance, while toning, firming, and sculpting your body. Both of these exercise techniques have a proven track record of helping people recover their full range of motion and improve flexibility and strength. In addition to improving overall health and well-being, and combined with a proper diet, Pilates and yoga exercises can accelerate and enhance your weight-loss and fitness program.What is Pilates? Pilates is a system of exercises designed to improve flexibility and strength. Joseph Pilates created this system of exercises during the First World War to improve the rehabilitation program of returning veterans. Believing that mental health and physical health are inter-related, Joseph Pilates suggested a few specific movements emphasizing control and form to help injured soldiers in regaining their healthy bodies. Out of this was born “The Pilates Principles”, a method for conditioning the entire body by strengthening, stretching, and stabilizing key muscles.The main difference between Pilates and yoga: yoga is more spiritual than physical. Both disciplines use a specific set of exercises that work the body as a whole, from the middle or “core” of the body. As with yoga, the Pilates method also teaches breath awareness and concentration to enhance its stress reduction benefits, but it has less of the spiritual and meditative components involved with yoga.Because Pilates’ history started with physical therapy, there are numerous exercises for people suffering from medical conditions such as scoliosis, arthritis, and multiple sclerosis. No longer confined to physiotherapy rooms, Pilates can be found in exercise studios and gyms, or can be practiced in the privacy of your home or office. As the low impact exercises emphasize stretching and are not as physically demanding or time consuming most workouts, Pilates appeals to busy adults, especially women, with variable and hectic schedules. Pilates is accommodating enough to challenge everyone, from someone starting to get into shape to someone in their best physical condition.Luckily, practicing both or switching from one method to the other is not a problem, as nearly all the equipment and accessories are used in both Pilates and yoga exercises, making them interchangeable; a cost-savings and convenience. With the help of instructional books and DVDs, Pilates and yoga can be practiced anywhere and at your convenience.Yoga Balance/Fitness balls enhance yoga, Pilates and fusion exercise programs to firm and strengthen abs, back and buttocks.For faster, more targeted toning, Circles (rings) and discs provide resistance for improving muscle strength throughout the body; especially in problem areas such as inner and outer thighs, upper arms, and chest.Yoga and Pilates mats provide cushioning and traction and are used in most classes. Although most studios have mats you can rent to use during class, it makes more sense to purchase your own mat, for both financial and hygienic reasons.Tone, firm and shape every muscle group with resistance tubes and bands. They are good for all ages, and all fitness levels will see results in just minutes a day. It is the best way to warm-up and cool-down, as well as an excellent relief for arthritis sufferers. Resistance tubes and bands are lightweight and compact enough to go anywhere.Yoga and Pilates kits are the perfect way to get started on a great routine. These kits equip you with the right tools required to understand, learn and practice your routine effectively, and realize its powerful benefits.Which method is the best for you? That depends on your individual needs, desires, and personal preferences. If you are not looking for a spiritual workout, Pilates may be more to your liking. If you are looking for more than exercise alone, yoga may be the ticket. Regardless, both disciplines can be done in the privacy and convenience of your home or office, saving the cost of an expensive gym membership. Pilates and yoga equipment and accessories are compact, lightweight, and portable, making any room, anywhere, a potential gym. No longer are we limited to specific gym hours or locations; we don’t need to finance big, bulky fitness equipment to obtain and maintain healthy bodies. Pilates and yoga provides fitness in minutes, a few times a week, for only a few bucks.
