Mascia Quoted in NewsdayNovember 13, 2017 |
Henry Mascia was interviewed by Newsday regarding increased scrutiny that will be placed on immigration enforcement in the New Year.
Mascia advises employers to review their procedures for verifying the work authorization of prospective or new employees. They should also know when existing employees’ work authorizations will expire, and have a system to notify the proper person to reverify the authorization before that.
Mascia also recommends conducting an internal audit, by choosing a sampling of I-9s at random to ensure they’re completed properly.
Employers should also review their practices pertaining to H1-B visa holders, as the Trump administration has put a priority on stricter enforcement of the H1-B program, which makes it possible for U.S. companies to hire highly skilled foreign workers, he says.
