Department of Homeland Security to Hold Employer Symposium
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently announced plans to hold a one day symposium entitled “Government and Employers 2009: Working Together to Ensure a Legal Workforce.” According to DHS, the talk is intended to cover employment eligibility compliance, the E-Verify federal contractor rule, the future course of worksite enforcement and other topics. Aside from the nuts-and-bolts of compliance, however, the symposium will also feature high-profile speakers, including DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.
The symposium is scheduled for November 19, 2009 from 8:30AM until 5:00PM at the Marriott Washington Wardman Park, 2660 Woodley Road, Northwest, Washington DC 20008. Attendees are asked to RSVP to Nicole Bedard via email (email@example.com) or phone at (202) 328-2000.
The symposium, and other efforts by DHS, continue to remind employers that employment eligibility and verification remain a focus of this administration.
