Immigration Compliance

I-9/Worksite Compliance

The Marks Gray Immigration team understands the evolving landscape of immigration compliance, particularly in relation to I-9 and E-Verify processes.

It’s common to feel uncertain about completing the Form I-9 or using E-Verify while also being concerned about the work authorization of your hires. However, ensuring I-9 compliance is a critical responsibility in today’s immigration environment, where immigration-related headlines dominate the news.

Failure to comply with I-9 regulations can lead to severe civil and criminal penalties for each violation, negatively impacting your company’s bottom line and workforce. When you sign the Form I-9, you do so under penalty of perjury.

As an HR professional, in-house counsel, or hiring manager, it is essential to actively set and implement company strategies to protect your organization from immigration compliance liability.

In the event that you face penalties, we can help you increase compliance and reduce fines through our training on the Five Statutory Factors that aggravate and minimize penalties. These factors include: business size, good faith, seriousness of violations, involvement of unauthorized workers, and history of prior violations.

While tactical tasks like immigration compliance are important, they must be accomplished within a bigger-picture strategic effort. This effort involves connecting the dots between comprehensive I-9 and E-Verify compliance policies, regular training, internal audits, and supportive leadership corporate culture.

Our scalable immigration compliance program is designed to transform your current immigration compliance process into an elevated system that equips individuals involved with the necessary skills and knowledge. The program includes: self-directed and self-paced learning, along with coaching to drive lasting compliance and sustainable change.

Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what our clients are saying about our I-9 compliance training and programs:

“Worth it! You receive bonus materials, certification, and education credits towards SHRM.”
“If you are looking for a deeper dive into the I-9 process, this is the workshop for you. Much more comprehensive than most of the I-9 seminars out there.”
“So many times, I-9 presentations are not long enough to really get into the nitty-gritty. This workshop was very comprehensive and a nice deep dive into the I-9 process.”

To further support your understanding of I-9 compliance, we provide additional resources such as videos and guides. These resources address common questions and concerns, including steps to ensure I-9 compliance, preparing for an I-9 audit, penalties for accidental hiring of illegal immigrants, and remote I-9 verification.

Testimonials & Reviews

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. I am sure we have been one of one of your most difficult clients for the past 2 years, but thank you for sticking with us. You kept us motivated, push us when needed and we made the filings on time. This could not have happened without the dedication of your team. Lots and lots of positive vibes. - South African EB-1 Executive and Green Card for Executive and family

First of all this is a MASSIVE packet....WHOA! However, it is a very well prepared packaged, succinct and I believe an accurate and strong capture of Unmesh! Very proud of him and excited for the results! Nothing for you to redact. I approve the package. -  HR Director Global Design Firm, O-1B petition package

I am pleased to share that my O1 work visa finally got approved! After 3 years of bad luck with the H1 lottery.. this was the best thing to happen! I want to thank Halima at Corgan HR, Giselle Carson, Esq. and the team at Marks Gray, Corgan Marketing, and Corgan leadership for guiding, and supporting me through this process! There were difficult and strenuous few months before this, but I had the best team on my side! - Indian Architectural Designer on O-1B approval

I have worked with Giselle for several years with our immigration needs. She is highly knowledgeable in all U.S. immigration and is very attentive to the needs of our Company. I have reached out with complicated cases and questions and, without hesitation, offer solutions and options. She and her team are true partners and has the best interest for the Company and our employees.

We are just beyond happy and cannot thank you enough. We never would have won this case without you. I was also shocked at the short time frame of the approval. We had resigned ourselves to the fact that we may not know anything for another year. We will give you the highest recommendations.
