Immigrant and Employee Rights (IER) Investigation Trends and Best Practices

Quarles & Brady Webinar

Please join us for a discussion designed to inform employers regarding ways to strengthen processes and compliance to avoid or respond to an Immigrant and Employee Rights (IER) investigation. The IER Division of the Department of Justice is responsible for enforcing the anti-discrimination provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), and its focus on this area of enforcement has intensified.

This session will cover these discussion topics and include time for Q&A:

  • Range of employment-based discrimination prohibited by the INA
  • Current trends in IER enforcement
  • What can employers do proactively to improve their compliance before IER comes knocking at their door?
  • What does an IER investigation look like?
  • What are the best practices for responding to an IER investigation?

CLE: Quarles & Brady will apply for 1.0 hour of general continuing legal education credit for Quarles & Brady attorneys and their clients in U.S. jurisdictions where applicable. Participants seeking CLE credit must be logged in, participating from their own device, and complete the electronic CLE form provided in the course dashboard materials. Please be sure to include the attendance verification code that will be announced during the presentation, regardless of which jurisdiction you are licensed in. Quarles will only provide CLE credit to those who return the form with the proper code.

The Impact of COVID-19 on Continuing Legal Education: Please note, to best comply with safety recommendations regarding COVID-19, many state bar offices are closed or operating with reduced staffing. This is anticipated to cause significant delays in approval for CLE accreditation. The processing time for course approval is expected to take between 2-16 weeks after the course.

Who should attend: This session is designed for in-house counsel, executives, compliance officers, HR professionals and hiring managers. Quarles & Brady reserves the right to limit or restrict attendance to the program.

HRCE: We will provide an HR Certificate of Attendance in the webinar dashboard materials for HR professionals who self-report continuing education.

This webinar is complimentary, but advance registration is required.
