Hello ASHHRA and IFD Members:

ASHHRA webinars
Register for an informative two part webinar series on I-9 Compliance and E-Verify from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Department of Homeland Security.

Form I-9 Compliance and Updates: Employment Verification Part 1
Wednesday, February 13
1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT, 11:00 a.m. MT, 10:00 a.m. PT
60-minute webinar

U.S. law requires companies to employ only individuals who may legally work in the United States — either U.S. citizens or foreign citizens who have the necessary authorization. This diverse workforce contributes greatly to the vibrancy and strength of our economy, but that same strength also attracts unauthorized employment. All employers are required to complete the Form I-9, Employment Verification Form, for new hires. This presentation will discuss the Form I-9 process, including the recent modifications and changes to the revision of the form, the legal requirements to complete and retain Form I-9 and complete the employee verification process.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Social Security Administration (SSA) make it easy for employers to quickly confirm the employment eligibility of new hires via E-Verify, a free, Web-based service. The program is the electronic extension of the Form I-9, and employers are now using E-Verify at more than one million worksites across the nation. Visit the Getting Started section on the E-Verify website to see System Requirements and a description of the enrollment process. Learn more about E-Verify by joining us for a live webinar conducted by DHS experts.

Constructing a culture of dissent
Diversity Executive
Seldom has a great business product or idea evolved without being tested or questioned by others in an effort to improve it. Most innovation or idea creation is a function of a collective where individuals, through discourse and discussion, work together to create something special. Constructive discourse provides value and purpose by promoting diversity of thought and setting the stage for respectful dialogue.

Think like Zuck: How leadership diversity sparks innovation
Diversity allows you to do more — think more, think differently, think better. It seems self-evident, really — yet so hard to get a lot of managers and CEOs to risk hiring or involving people who are different from them, who do things differently or think differently.

How employers can ensure I-9 forms are correct
Employers should be familiar with Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, since some variation of it has been mandatory since 1986. The I-9 is used by every employer to verify the identity and employment eligibility of all new employees to prove they're American citizens, U.S. nationals or immigrants authorized to work in the United States. While completing an I-9 form may seem straightforward, it can quickly get complicated. Even employers with the best of intentions and well-trained employees may find themselves trying to work through situations they never anticipated.

Even HR gets reviewed: How to prepare
Recruiting Trends
Going to the dentist; having the middle seat on a long flight; sitting through your next performance review. What these three events have in common is that few of us look forward to any of them. Annual reviews make most of us uncomfortable, as we wonder which aspects of our performance were most important, and whether we will be evaluated fairly. The entire process seems vague, subjective — and extremely intimidating. Ironically, surviving a review is no easier for HR professionals. In fact, it may be worse since many HR pros believe they can conduct a review better than their boss.

Workplace cultural diversity: Then and now
by Laura A. Foster
Cultural diversity initiatives have been on the increase for almost a decade. In fact, such initiatives were in 76 percent of businesses in 2005, according to the Society for Human Resource Management. The United States Department of Labor estimates that 85 percent of new entrants into the 2013 labor market will be women, minorities and immigrants. Companies hire according to metrics intended to make sure the labor force is proportional to the cultural makeup of its customers and the area in which the company is located and does business. Morale is increased, there is a reduction in skills shortages, and customer service improves with cultural diversity.

From accommodation to inclusion
Diversity Executive
More than 56 million Americans — nearly one out of five — have a disability, according to the latest U.S. Census. Of these, 29 million are between ages 21 and 64. But only 18 percent are employed, according to the Department of Labor, and less than 30 percent of companies have disability-specific diversity policies or programs in place, according to a study conducted by the Kessler Foundation, the National Organization on Disability and Harris Interactive.
