    They always say "it won't happen to me"....until it does! If you haven't been keeping tabs on your I-9's, now is the time to do so.

    ICE is increasing I-9 audits this summer! ICE has already opened more worksite investigations seven months into FY2018 than the agency completed in all of FY 2017. 

    Since October 2017, HSI has opened 3,510 worksite investigations, initiated 2,282 I-9 audits, and made 594 criminal and 610 administrative worksite-related arrests. That's up from 1,716 investigations, 1,360 I-9 audits, 139 criminal arrests and 172 administrative arrests the previous fiscal year.

    Our chapter received this honor thanks to our members and board! Every gift that SHRM Foundation received, including donations from our chapter and members, will be used to deliver 300+ scholarships in 2018 and continue their work to engage and integrate military veterans in the workplace. Additionally, our contributions supported the launch of Innovation Grants, their newest funding opportunity that supports SHRM state councils and chapters working to improve their communities and build inclusive organizations.

    Thank you all for your help in supporting the SHRM Foundation and for making a difference in the lives of HR professionals!
