Assignment 1: Discussion Assignment
As the Chief Human Resource Officer of Community State University, you have just been contacted by your legal team. They informed you that your organization has been selected to undergo a Federal I-9 audit. You decided to do a spot check on 5 random departments and noticed that numerous I-9s were filled out incorrectly. You only have one month before the auditors arrive to do an entire I-9 audit on over 100 departments and the president of the university expects a strategic update on how to tackle this issue in 2 days.
For the first part of your post, describe the immigration forms and documents needed to apply for a job. Research and review an I-9 Form and describe the documents that you would produce to establish legal U.S. status.
For the second part of your post, recommend a plan of action to correct the deficient forms described in the scenario above. In your discussion, analyze whether the I-9 Form and other documents are enough to establish legal status in the U.S. and are adequate protection for employers.
For the third part of your post, justify one additional safeguard that could be added to protect the employer from unknowingly hiring an illegal immigrant.
