Designed to help human resource managers and immigration lawyers navigate complicated immigration laws and requirements, this handbook demystifies an array of statutes and regulations in a simple and straightforward question-and-answer format that includes flowcharts, illustrations, checklists, and sample documents. Complex state and federal laws—such as the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986—are discussed in detail with information on new procedures and requirements, including the Social Security Administration’s no-match rule and the Department of Homeland Security’s e-verify system.
