If your company is pursuing a services agreement with Publix Super Markets, Inc., it will be required to complete an annual certification of its immigration law compliance using a qualified, independent third party; or retain a qualified, independent third party to complete all company employee I-9s on an on-going basis. If the audit is chosen, it must be completed every 12 months. The annual certification must be submitted directly to Publix consistent with the time schedule outlined in your Services Agreement. Publix provides contracting parties with a sample Annual Immigration Law Certification form to use and Consultstu has revised the template for use with our clients.
Due to our extensive experience with human resources practices and I-9 forms, we have served as the independent third-party auditor for several Publix contractors in recent months. Stuart Charlson has over 25 years of experience with human resources consulting and compliance services for small to mid-sized businesses.
Our audit and review will be conducted at your worksite, and involve a review of the Company’s I9 forms, written immigration-related policies, postings and E-Verify practices (if used). We provide immediate feedback on your practices and identify any necessary corrections to bring immigration documents and policies into compliance with any and all immigration laws, including the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. At the end of the audit, we provide your company with the immigration law certification form to submit to Publix. For more information on this service, contact our office at 727-350-0370.
