The new social security no match regulation goes into effect September 14, 2007. On Wednesday, August 22 from 2:00pm-3:30pm eastern time, AILA will hold the Late-Breaking Seminar: Social Security No Match Regulation to help members understand this new regulation so they can provide sound counsel to their employer clients. Online registration is now open!
The Social Security Administration issues thousands of notices a year to employers when employee names and Social Security Numbers do not match. Under the new "No-Match Letter" regulation from the DHS, employers will have to act on the letters and take steps to clear up discrepancies, or risk severe sanctions in an enforcement action. It's clear that employers will have to walk a tight line to avoid viable discrimination claims. The DHS rules counsel not to reverify too early, or terminate too hastily -- and to treat everyone equally if their number shows up on the no-match list. That's a lot for employers to handle, especially if they have multiple locations and overriding business and operational issues with which to deal. The Seminar discussion will include an overview of key points of the regulation; expansion of constructive knowledge; revisions to the "safe harbor" protocol; re-verifying employment eligibility; when "safe harbor" is not available; risks to employers; strategies for compliance; and best practices. There will also be a Q&A at the end of the presentation. The faculty includes Josie Gonzalez (dl), AILA Board of Governors, Gonzalez & Harris, APC, Pasadena, CA; Daniel Brown, Paul Hastings Janofsky & Walker, LLP, Washington, D.C., and Mary E. Pivec, Keller & Heckman, LLP, Washington, D.C.
The registration fee includes a toll-free number for callers in the United States. Callers outside the United States should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information about how to connect to the call and additional direct-dial charges that apply.
