PIHRA North Orange Co
Complying With Both Federal and State Immigration Laws
presented by Carl Shusterman
The California Immigrant Worker Protection Act also known as IWPA became effective on January 1, 2018.
IWPA imposes the following restrictions on California employers:
- They are prohibited from giving federal immigration agents access to non-public areas of the workplace or employee records without a judicial warrant or subpoena;
- They are required to give employees and union representatives (if any) notification before and after I-9 inspections; and
- They cannot reverify the immigration eligibility of employees to continue working unless mandated by federal law.
IWPA prohibits employers from reverifying the employment eligibility of current employees at a time or manner not required by federal law. Employers are required to conduct reverification before an employee’s existing work authorization expires.
This provision creates problems for employers who wish to conduct internal I-9 audits to rectify any deficiencies in their I-9s, something Carl Shusterman has been advising employers to do for over 30 years. While Federal immigration laws require that an I-9 be reverified when an employee’s temporary work permit is about to expire or where is a name change, there is no requirement that employers conduct self-audits even though it is almost always a good idea to do so.
Join Carl Shusterman to learn whether employers may still conduct I-9 self-audits under the IWPA and federal law, and to learn additional tips to comply with federal and state immigration laws.
