Ag. Dept. to hold immigration web seminars 10/14

Alabama-Commissioner John McMillan Thursday announced a statewide web seminar series on the state's new immigration law to be held Friday, October 14.

"Now that there is a ruling from the federal district court, we are moving forward to help farmers and agribusinesses understand their role and responsibilities in complying with the immigration law," McMillan said. "This law contains many provisions with stiff fines and penalties. It is critical for farmers and agribusinesses to understand fully how this law applies to them."

Working in conjunction with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES), the Alabama Department of Agriculture & Industries has advised agriculture stakeholder groups to invite their members to the three-part web seminar series, which begins at 10 am and concludes at 1 pm.

Labor law expert Thomas M. Eden of the Capell & Howard law firm will conduct the seminars, which include: an overview of the law, complying with key provisions, and record-keeping.

1) "Do's and Don'ts for Employers"

2) "The E-Verify Enrollment Process"

3) "Form I-9 Supervisor Training & Tips"

ACES has offices in all 67 Alabama counties where people can attend the live seminars, which also will be available online for those who are unable to travel. The seminars will be recorded and archived for people to access via the Internet.
