My next guest was Maria del Carmen Ramos, Immigration/Employment Attorney with Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP. Practicing law since 2001, Maria shares with us some need to know information on the importance of immigration employment compliance. We discussed Form I-9 at length, a form required of all employers to complete on behalf of each of their employees which works to regular illegal immigration. The form puts the burden of checking on workforce eligibility onto the employer and is not required to be filed with any organization, but kept in house in the event of an audit by ICE, the oversight agency. Penalties for non-compliance are severe and in 2012 alone, ICE made 520 criminal arrests linked to worksite enforcement, including the detention of 240 owners, managers, supervisors, and HR professionals and served more than 3000 notices of inspections. The form is simple to complete and can be found easily online for employers not familiar with this HR requirement. Check with your payroll company too to see if they assisted with this during the initial setup for your business. We finished up the discussion with a brief talk on work visas and how they work. Maria is available to help you with employment and immigration needs at 813-227-2252 or online at!

Next I welcomed Julie Phillips, Founder of We Offer Wellness Simplified (WOW). Founded after a personal battle with her own health, Julie works to educate others on the benefits of living and eating healthy. She shares this story with our audience and after countless meetings with Doctors that did not produce results, a herbal specialist turned her on to wellness ideas outside of the traditional medical box which resulted in her improvement and cure of the problem. Julie also elaborates on the dangers of bottled water inside plastic bottles, so tune in to hear this discussion as well. Julie holds regular events on healthy living and you can learn more about Julie at or give her a call at 813-695-4372.
