Immigrant and Employee Rights (IER) is the agency responsible for reviewing discrimination complaints in the hiring process, and many of these complaints arise due to the I-9 and E-Verify processes. Immigration law partner Katie Minervino participated in a panel discussion covering topics including:
- Overview of IER and its jurisdiction
- How discrimination can arise in the I-9, E-Verify, and reverification processes
- Overview of key technical assistance letters and how to use them in advising clients
- Recent investigations and penalties issued
For more than ten years, Katie Minervino’s practice has focused exclusively on employment-based immigration law, helping employers and employees create and execute immigration strategies to meet their short- and long-term immigration needs. Katie is also the AILA Verification & Documentation Liaison Vice Chair.
