The Senate passed its comprehensive immigration reform bill. However, it is unclear when or how the House of Representatives will proceed on the issue. While this is a step toward potential immigration reform, employers should remember that this does not change the work authorization  Form I-9 requirements. Accordingly, workers who disclose that they lack US work authorization provide the employer actual knowledge, and the employer must terminate the worker until work authorization is secured.
