Current immigration law and prospective changes — and how to comply with them — will be the focus of the Georgia Southern University seminar “LAW 106: Immigration Compliance Issues for Businesses” scheduled for 6 p.m., July 19, at the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah.

Melissa Azallion, an attorney with the Nexsen Pruet law firm in Hilton Head, S.C., will conduct the 90-minute seminar, which is part of the Legal Awareness in the Workplace (LAW) seminar series.

“Employment verification and I-9 compliance are issues human resources managers address regularly,” said J. Marie Lutz, program coordinator in the University’s Division for Continuing Education and Public Service. “Employers must examine documents for all new employees, determining if they are eligible to work in the United States.”

The LAW seminar series runs monthly at the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah and quarterly at the Coastal Georgia Community College in Brunswick. Upcoming LAW topics include Hostile Work Environment – A Case Review; Georgia Employment Law; New Hire Documentation; and Hot Topics in Employment Law (monthly in Savannah) and Federal Labor and Employment Law Record Keeping; and Hostile Work Environment – A Case Review (both in Brunswick).

To register for any $69 seminar, visit or call the University’s Continuing Education Center at (912) 681-5551. Participants who register for three or more seminars pay the discounted series rate of $59 per seminar.
