APPROACHING TO COMMENT ON PROPOSED DHS EMPLOYER RULE
Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement has proposed to amend the regulations
relating to the unlawful hiring or continued employment of unauthorized aliens.
The amended regulations describe the legal obligations of an employer, under current
immigration law, when the employer receives a no-match letter from the Social
Security Administration or the Department of Homeland Security.
also describes ``safe-harbor'' procedures that the employer can follow in response
to such a letter and thereby be certain that DHS will not find that the employer
had constructive knowledge that the employee referred to in the letter was an
alien not authorized to work in the United States.
deadline to submit written comments on the proposed ruling is August 14. To view
the proposed rule in the Federal Register and access submission requirements,

Library section of www.ffva.com.
