Form 1-9 Webinar Announced

Press Release From USCIS

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will conduct three webinars in March to inform employers and workers residing in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) about Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. There will also be a question and answer period, and a brief review of E-Verify.

Every employer and agricultural recruiter/referrer-for-a-fee must complete a Form I-9 for each individual hired for employment in the United States, as required by federal law. All new employees are required to present proof of employment eligibility and identity to employers during the Form I-9 process. Employers and workers should visit the I-9 Central Web section at for more information on Form I-9.

As of November 28, 2011, employers in the CNMI must use the standard Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification when hiring individuals for employment in the CNMI and for reverification. Employers can no longer use the Form I-9 CNMI, which was temporarily used in the CNMI.

The webinar schedule is listed below. To join the webinar, click on the link below and follow the instructions on your screen. We recommend you log into the webinar 10-15 minutes prior to the start time.

For Employers:
Tuesday, March 20, at 9:00 am (CNMI time);
For Workers:
Wednesday, March 21, at 9:00 am (CNMI time); and
For Employers:
Thursday, March 22, at 9:00 am (CNMI time).

Seems like the Feds are looking at "underground" and "scam" employers. This may also be a way of tracking revenue and also "linking" certain people to many of these employment scams.
The thing with these employment "scams" now, under the Feds, is that both employer and employee are criminally liable.
Will this be a way to actually reduce more CW?
(Not; I have not gone onto the site as of yet)
