To ensure I-9 compliance, employers need to know the requirements at both the state and federal level. Factor in today's changing immigration environment and high turnover rates associated with the retail industry, and the process becomes more challenging as risks for non-compliance become elevated. 

During the NRF Human Resource Executives Summit 2014, Troy Hupp, director, I-9 Management and Compliance Center Operations, and Mark Schwendeman, vertical business leader – Retail, for Equifax Workforce Solutions, will join Anita Morse, benefits coordinator at Gordmans, Inc., to discuss the latest legislative developments impacting retail employers as well as what the future holds, focusing on immigration reform as it relates to Form I-9 and E-Verify. Highlighting Gordmans' case study, this session will explore how the company implemented an automated compliance technology to mitigate risks without hindering business growth. Session attendees will learn best practices for completing the Form I-9 and E-Verify and understand the pitfalls and compliance risks associated with some common practices.

Human resource executives and retail business leaders interested in learning how I-9 automation can streamline processes and ensure compliance at their organization are encouraged to attend this informative session.
