Legal Risk Management: Managing Immigration "I-9" Compliance and Avoiding Anti-Discrimination Claims
5 Major Mistakes Businesses Owners Make that Expose Themselves and Their Businesses to Huge Legal Risk, Severe Financial Loss, and Bad Publicity! Presentation by Ann Massey Badmus and Angela M. Lopez, Shareholders, Cowles & Thompson, PC discusses the major mistake of lacking a comprehensive written immigration compliance plan to avoid costly I-9 violations and anti-discrimination claims. Failing to meet rules and requirements for company recordkeeping, reporting, and governance and proper planning for business transitions Failing to properly negotiate and manage contracts to protect company interests All employers must abide by two sets of immigration rules, even if all employees are U.S. citizens or legal residents. First, employers must verify employment authorization of all employees within very prescribed requirements of the I-9 rules. Second, an employer must not overstep bounds and discriminate against legal immigrants in its effort to verify employment authorization. Otherwise, the employer might violate the anti-discrimination rules under the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA). Ann Massey Badmus is a shareholder and chair of the Immigration Section of Cowles & Thompson and a nationally recognized immigration lawyer who has been featured prominently in numerous business publications. Her practice consists primarily of employment and business related immigration matters, representing employers and their employees before various state and federal agencies with immigration oversight. Ms. Badmus has extensive experience with employment-related temporary worker petitions for H-1B professional worker visas, L-1 transfer visas, E-1/E-2 treaty investor and trader visas, O-1 extraordinary ability visas, and others. Ms. Badmus also assists employers seeking to insure compliance with state and federal immigration rules regarding employment eligibility verification (I-9) and anti-discrimination. Angela M. Lopez is a shareholder and serves in the Immigration Section of the firm. Ms. Lopez has been practicing exclusively in the field of immigration law since 2002 and has developed a large national practice representing numerous foreign nationals and their employers in obtaining temporary employment nonimmigrant visas and permanent residence. Ms. Lopez extensive experience includes H-1B professional worker visas, O-1 extraordinary ability visas, E-1/E-2 treaty investor, L-1 transfer visas, TN temporary work visa for citizens of Canada & Mexico, E-3 professional worker visas for Australian nationals, and permanent residence applications based upon labor certification, extraordinary ability aliens, national interest waivers, multinational managers and executives, and EB5 investor immigrant visas. Mrs. Lopez also assists employers with federal immigration rules regarding employment eligibility verification (I-9) compliance.

I MAKE CUTE BABIES - https://amzn.to/2DqiynS What is CONTRACT MANAGEMENT? What does CONTRACT MANAGEMENT mean? CONTRACT MANAGEMENT definition - CONTRACT MANAGEMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Contract management or contract administration is the management of contracts made with customers, vendors, partners, or employees. The personnel involved in contract administration required to negotiate, support and manage effective contracts are often expensive to train and retain. Contract management includes negotiating the terms and conditions in contracts and ensuring compliance with the terms and conditions, as well as documenting and agreeing on any changes or amendments that may arise during its implementation or execution. It can be summarized as the process of systematically and efficiently managing contract creation, execution, and analysis for the purpose of maximizing financial and operational performance and minimizing risk. Common commercial contracts include employment letters, sales invoices, purchase orders, and utility contracts. Complex contracts are often necessary for construction projects, goods or services that are highly regulated, goods or services with detailed technical specifications, intellectual property (IP) agreements, outsourcing and international trade. Most larger contracts require the effective use of contract management software to aid administration among multiple parties. A study has found that for "42% of enterprises...the top driver for improvements in the management of contracts is the pressure to better assess and mitigate risks" and additionally,"nearly 65% of enterprises report that contract lifecycle management (CLM) has improved exposure to financial and legal risk." During the post-award phase, it is important to ensure that contract conditions and terms are met, but it is also critical to take a closer look for items such as unrecorded liabilities, under-reported revenue or overpayments. If these items are overlooked, margin may be negatively impacted. A contract compliance audit will often commence with an opportunity review to identify the highest risk areas. Having a dedicated contract compliance (and/or governance) program in place has been shown to result in a typical recovery of 2-4% and sometimes as high as 20%. Current thinking about contract management in complex relationships is shifting from a compliance “management” to a “governance” perspective, with the focus on creating a governance structure in which the parties have a vested interest in managing what are often highly complex contractual arrangements in a more collaborative, aligned, ?exible, and credible way. In 1979, Nobel laureate Oliver Williamson wrote that the governance structure is the “framework within which the integrity of a transaction is decided.” He further added that “because contracts are varied and complex, governance structures vary with the nature of the transaction.” (See also relational contract). Eriksson and Westerberg (2011); Li, Arditi, and Wang (2012); Chen and Manley (2014), and Cardenas, Voordijk, and Dewulf (2017) have hypothesized, developed and extensively tested conceptual models in which relevant project governance instruments and factors were identified and related to the performance of construction projects. A collaborative governance framework has four components: A relationship management structure (how the parties work together to make both day to day operational decisions as well as strategic decisions) A joint performance and transformation management process designed to track the overall performance of the partnership An exit management plan as a controlling mechanism to encourage the organizations to make ethical, proactive changes for the mutual benefit of all the parties. Compliance to special concerns and regulations, which include the more traditional components of contract compliance.

Hazard, Risk & Safety - Understanding Risk Assessment, Management and Perception
(subtitles available in English, French, Dutch, Spanish, Chinese and Russian, German, and a French version is available here: https://youtu.be/wRmfvFYDNr8) Hazard, Risk & Safety Danger, risques et sécurité Gevaar, risico's en veiligheid Peligro, riesgo y seguridad Опасность, риск и безопасность Gefahr, Risiko und Sicherheit We all hear these terms on a daily basis. So and so a chemical, physical or a biological agent poses a risk; This or that product is a hazard or behaving a certain way is unsafe. A lot of the time “hazard” and “risk” are freely used to mean the same thing. However they are not. Hazard is the potential to cause harm. Risk on the other hand is the likelihood of harm in defined circumstances. In a nutshell, hazard and risk are not always aligned as the risk depends on the exposure to the hazard ; similarly, risk, safety and perception of risk are not always aligned; this can make political decisions regarding safety levels difficult to make, in these cases it is especially important to base them on facts rather than on subjective perceptions. http://www.greenfacts.org
