Pledge Continued Efforts to Ensure Employment Verification System Works for U.S. Employers and Trusted Employer Program Included in Final Reform Measure
Washington, D.C. – The American Council on International Personnel (ACIP) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) today welcomed bipartisan Senate passage of the
Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act (S. 744).
With two critical employer priorities not fully addressed in the legislation – a fully electronic and integrated employment verification system that can accurately guard against identity theft and a Trusted Employer program for greater processing efficiency that will help to avoid processing delays – the strategic affiliates pledged to continue working with policymakers to ensure the final reforms work for U.S. employers and employees.
“While it is encouraging to see bipartisan progress being made to reform the U.S. immigration system, there are areas of the employment verification system that need to be improved,” said Michael Aitken, SHRM Vice President of Government Affairs. “We will continue to press for an employment verification system that can provide certainty to an employer that they are hiring a legal worker.”
“The green card provisions in S. 744 are exemplary and the kind of reforms the outdated U.S. immigration system needs for America to stay globally competitive,” said ACIP Executive Director Lynn Shotwell. “We look forward to continuing to work with lawmakers to ensure that, before a bill goes to the President’s desk, all high-skilled provisions provide for U.S. growth and that a Trusted Employer program is created.”
