Fraudulent Document Detection
Unauthorized workers often attempt to secure a job by fraudulent means through the use of false documents. Could you or your staff spot a fraudulent document if a new hire presented one for the purpose of completing their I-9?
In an effort to curb unlawful employment, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has developed the ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers (IMAGE). Through this initiative, ICE arranges for outreach, education and training for U.S. employers.
During our December program, Special Agents with ICE will provide attendees with an overview of some of the documents frequently submitted to employers to establish authorization to work in the U.S. The discussion will include the necessary completion of the Form I-9 and a review of some of the basic security features which may indicate that a document, such as a Social Security card or a Legal Permanent Resident card, is fraudulent or has been altered.
Also, please note that MCHRA will be hosting a teddy bear drive for Project HOPE at this meeting. If you would like to participate, please bring a 12-24 inch stuffed animal to the meeting. For more details, please see this link.
