LEWISTON — The Lewiston Auburn Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Central Maine Human Resource Association and the Lewiston CareerCenter, is offering the next HR Thursday program Sept. 28.

“The New I-9 Form: It’s New Bark and How to Avoid its Bite — Like Anti Discrimination Claims” will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Chamber Conference Room, 415 Lisbon St.

The I-9 is a two-page form with a 115-page instruction manual, and employers need to complete one for every new hire who crosses their threshold. Auburn attorney Michael Malloy of The Malloy Firm, will give an overview of this document and will offer tips for staying in compliance and avoiding the heavy fines that can accompany seemingly innocent errors. Topics will include: what to do in the event of a Homeland Security audit, fixing mistakes, and avoiding national origin discrimination claims.
