This is the recording of the 2022 ASA Staffing Law Conference session: Trends in Immigration Enforcement: Hiring Preferences, Virtual I-9s, and More. 

As the demand for talent is greater than ever, staffing firms throughout the U.S. are trying to encourage workers of all backgrounds to apply. However, using hiring preferences and language in job ads that could be construed as favoring individuals based on citizenship can create significant legal liabilities. Learn how to thread this legal needle and get the latest information on the status of virtual I-9s—and whether there is any hope that they’re here to stay—plus hear how to navigate the latest immigration rules to avoid fines and protect your company.
