First CU is first FI in immigration IMAGE program
CHANDLER, Ariz. (2/6/09)--First CU announced it is the first and only financial institution in the nation to become a full partner in the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) IMAGE Program. IMAGE is an acronym for ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers. The goal of IMAGE is to help employers in targeted sectors develop secure and stable work forces, and to enhance fraudulent-document awareness through education and training. ICE has scheduled a press conference for Thursday in Phoenix to announce the launch of the new program. Speakers from ICE will explain the benefits to employers who achieve full partnership status. Full partnership status involved First CU’s Human Resources team conducting an extensive audit with ICE on I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification forms, demonstrating compliance with E-Verify laws, performing a Social Security number verification on current employees, writing a hiring procedure for review/approval by the Office of Special Counsel, and imaging all the I-9 forms into a secure system. Pat Richardson, First CU human resources manager, recently traveled to Washington, D.C., to take part in the formal signing ceremony and three days of intensive training. As part of the agreement, ICE will provide the employees of First CU with free document recognition and/or I-9 training as appropriate. First CU is based in Chandler, Ariz., and has more than $450 million in assets.
