PHOENIX, Ariz., May 11, 2011 – LawLogix Group, Inc., the proven leader in I-9, E-Verify and Immigration Case Management Software, announced today that it will host a unique educational session on Form I-9 compliance and technology with former ICE Policy Director, Dan Brown, at the 2011 International Association for Human Resource Information Management (IHRIM) conference. The session,”I-9 and E-Verify in the Cloud: Walking the Tightrope to Deliver a Compliant Solution” will be held on Monday May 16th at the Gaylord National Hotel in Washington DC.

Verification of employment eligibility is increasingly a hot topic, and HR Technology continues to play a dominant role in ensuring compliance with frequently changing and heavily enforced I-9 and E-Verify rules. In the wake of these increasing obligations, many employers have opted to modernize their paper-based I-9 processes with intelligent electronic I-9 and E-Verify solutions, which are deployed via a Software-as-a-Service model that is hosted in the cloud. While the advantages of electronic I-9 applications are well established, employers must still perform their due diligence to ensure their solution adheres to the final electronic I-9 regulations and E-Verify guidance.

“During the past few years, many employers have adopted an electronic I-9 solution or even developed their own internal system, only to learn later that it does not comply with the regulations or lacks property security protections,” said John Fay, who serves as General Counsel of LawLogix while also managing the company’s comprehensive I-9 and E-Verify news blog. “As we’ll discuss in our presentation, this is where the HRIS professional can add tremendous value by evaluating the I-9 system from a technical perspective and asking the right questions of the vendor. ICE has made it abundantly clear that organizations cannot hide behind their electronic systems, so this evaluation is a critical piece of the I-9 compliance puzzle.”

This educational session will also include a discussion of the essential security and compliance considerations to address when choosing an electronic I-9 and E-Verify system and provide tips for a successful project implementation. Attendees will also learn strategies for communicating a sense of urgency with various I-9 stakeholders and gain insight into the top security and compliance questions to ask of your vendor before you unleash your data to the
cloud.
