Legal News: May/June
A new I-9 Form was released by the US Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) on March 8, 2013. Employers should make themselves familiar with this new form, and its requirements. Effective May 7, 2013 employers must use the new form. Additionally, government agencies have been conducting many more I-9 audits, resulting in fines to employers of thousands of dollars. KardasLarson is available to help organizations maneuver through the challenging landscape of Immigration Verification Compliance, including conducting I-9 audits to mitigate organizational risk.
Both federal and state governments have increased their staffs to investigate and audit organizations for FLSA/wage and hour, immigration, FMLA, and other regulatory compliance requirements resulting in large fines. KardasLarson provides comprehensive HR Compliance audits for organizations to ensure compliance and best practices, as well as reduce the possibilities of large fines against employers.
On May 8, 2013, the DC Court of Appeals struck down the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) poster rule requiring employers covered under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), which are the vast majority of employers, to post a notice identifying a number of rights of employees including the right to form a Union. This DC Court, who's jurisdiction includes Connecticut, had previously approved an injunction to this NLRB posting rule while it considered many arguments for and against this rule. During the injunction period affected employers did not have post the notice, and now will not have to at all.
KardasLarson ensures their clients are informed of these new laws and initiatives, and helps clients prepare for and implement approaches and policies ensuring they are compliant.
