A new XpertHR podcast takes a look at a range of immigration issues affecting the employment law realm with Seattle employment attorney Davis Bae of the nationwide employment firm Jackson Lewis.

Key topics addressed include the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program, the DREAM Act, the federal E-Verify system for confirming work eligibility and controversy surrounding the proposed new Form I-9.

With immigration reform set to be one of the Obama administration's top priorities in the new year, Bae's insights are a must-listen for HR professionals. Among many other things, he recommends that employers go back and take a hard look back at their immigration compliance programs.
