    NOTE: Regardless of the recent legal challenges, we anticipate the executive actions taking effect this year.

    The President’s Executive Order will make an estimated 4 million undocumented immigrants – many of them farm workers - eligible for status adjustment this spring.  Employers must make changes now to their policies or risk being charged with knowingly employing an undocumented worker.

    Here’s why: By law, an employer cannot knowingly hire or continue to employ anyone who is not work authorized. The President’s Executive Order may provide work authorization for undocumented immigrants who have U.S. born children. In order to apply for this work authorization, many of these undocumented immigrants will contact their present employers seeking verification of employment that may be required for their application. ICE has confirmed to WAFLA that employers cannot continue to employ these people. 

    WAFLA has engaged a leading immigration attorney to explain how employers will respond.  At this Webinar, you will:

    • Understand the New Executive Actions and how they will impact seasonal employers.
    • Learn about the “Constructive Knowledge” regulation which places additional requirements on employers to investigate issues like this.
    • Receive a model policy and best practices which can insulate your business from a charge of knowingly hiring an undocumented worker.
