Special Meeting for Businesses

The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office will be sponsoring an informational session for Frederick County business owners and their human resource staff to assist them in complying with current federal employments laws.

A representative from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will be in attendance to provide a plain-language explanation in the proper preparation of the I-9 Form, its acceptable documents, and other relevant information. Also discussed will be the Ice Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers program, IMAGE, which is a voluntary program of best business practices that help to ensure a legal workforce. There will be a short question and answer session following the briefing.

The forum will be held Thursday, February 24th from 6 to 8 p.m. in the main conference room of the Frederick County Law Enforcement Center, located at 110 Airport Drive East, Frederick. Due to limited seating, the Sheriff’s Office is asking businesses to RSVP with the number attending to Capt. Tim Clarke at 301-600-3643, by Monday, February 21st. If the class fills and there is a need for additional sessions, the Sheriff’s Office will compile a list of those businesses to be contacted for the next available session.
