The End of I-9 COVID Flexibility and Other Emerging Immigration Issues

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has announced that the temporary COVID-19 accommodations that allowed for remote Form I-9 inspections will expire on July 31, 2023. Employers will have until August 30, 2023, to conduct physical inspections of original documents and update Form I-9 for employees whose documents were inspected remotely while the temporary policy was in effect. In this webinar, the speakers will discuss remediation in connection with the end of virtual verification and tips for compliant and nondiscriminatory I-9 inspection and verification. The speakers will also provide an update on new types of work authorization and how to memorialize it on the I-9 form, the use of authorized representatives for remote onboarding, and best practices for internal audits.

OSHA Post-Pandemic: Back to the Future

COVID-19 knocked the whole world, including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), off its pins. The pandemic distracted OSHA from its planned agenda and usual rulemaking and enforcement activity, including on-site inspections. Now that the COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, OSHA is back to business as usual. But what is that likely to look like when it comes to rulemaking and enforcement? This session will bring attendees up to date on what we anticipate as OSHA goes back to the future.

Mock Employment Tribunal

Our mock Employment Tribunal will give attendees a flavour of what it would be like in real life. In a role-play scenario, a team of experienced employment barristers (one of whom is a practicing Employment Tribunal judge), together with Ogletree Deakins’ London team, will recreate the workings of a Tribunal in a safe and non-critical environment where attendees can raise questions as the event unfolds. You will have an opportunity to understand the procedure of giving evidence, cross-examination, and re-examination, to discuss your perceptions of the evidence, and to predict the outcome of the case.
