Continuiing on a theme from our February meeting on Expatriates, our April meeting will address your compliance obligations with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS).  

What? I didn’t know that about the I-9!  

Even the most ‘seasoned’ Form I-9 professionals will walk from this high energy conversation saying “I didn’t know that”!  We’ll discuss a host of items including how to avoid common mistakes in  completing the I-9, how you can complete an I-9, on a new hire, before they starting working for pay, copying documents and what to do if you are missing an I-9. 

E-Verify, Form I-9’s Companion 

E-Verify is the free web-based service administered by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) and the Social Security Administration (SSA) that allows enrolled employers to electronically verify the employment eligibility of their new hires. From the federal perspective, E-Verify is voluntary for most users.  During this session we’ll provide a brief overview of E-Verify. 

Our speaker this month is Marcel Sullivan, a Management and Program Analyst with the Verification Division of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in Washington, DC.  

Marcel graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2005 and relocated to Fairfax, Virginia in 2007.  Marcel began his career with the Federal Government by providing IT Support to the Office of the Secretary for Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  Starting in 2010 he moved on to become a Management and Program Analyst within the Public Relations and Education Section. Marcel helps to educate the public through promoting various programs such as E-Verify, Form I-9, and Self Check on behalf of the Department of Homeland Security. He promotes these various programs by giving presentations throughout the United States, exhibiting at conferences, and providing hands on training for employers through live webinars.

Marcel also promotes the E-Verify program by building relationships with both internal and external stakeholders. He helps to educate members of Congress and their staffers by providing briefings and presentations as requested. Marcel served as a detail to the Office of Special Counsel within the Department of Justice where he educated the public on employees’ rights and employer’s responsibilities as it relates to E-Verify.
