Rocky Mountain Employers Immigration Alliance
Curray York & Associates LLC, together with Range Law, a leading employment law firm, and Recht Korneld, PC. a highly regarded criminal defense firm formed the Rocky Mountain Employers Immigration Alliance. The Alliance offers comprehensive legal services to guide and support employers in complying with complex immigration laws and regulations, especially those that require employee verification.
As widely reported in the media, Immigration & Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) and other federal agencies are intensifying enforcement activities against employers. The Swift Meat Packing raid a number of years ago and a series of criminal prosecutions around the country are just the tip of the iceberg for the government’s long-term enforcement strategy. In addition to ICE increasing its enforcement actions, the Social Security Administration has resumed issuance of its “No-Match” letters. These actions come in a political climate that demands intensified enforcement actions against employers who may be hiring undocumented workers or simply not paying close enough attention to the I-9 process.
The Rocky Mountain Employers Immigration Alliance was formed to advise employers on complying with the law and represent them in enforcement actions. The Alliance offers a full range of audit and investigatory services related to employee verification. We develop company-specific compliance programs and conduct random sampling of I-9s, as well as full-scale audits. In doing so, we keep an eye on the need to maintain sound employment policies and procedures, including compliance with anti-discrimination and wage and hour requirements. We also offer expertise in conducting internal investigations to identify existing or potential problems. We can assist in creating and implementing appropriate remedial measures aimed at avoiding both criminal and civil liability.
The Alliance provides employers with the resources to immediately and comprehensively respond to inquiries or investigations initiated by ICE or other government agencies. By having one point of contact, we can move quickly when there is no time to lose. In addition, the Alliance offers a full range of training options to provide managers and supervisors with best practices for dealing with the immigration, employment, and criminal law implications of the employee verification process.
Finally, we offer due diligence services at a number of levels for companies that are acquiring, selling, or merging with new or existing enterprises.
