All employees hired in the United States must fill out Form I-9 to prove they can legally work here. The United States Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) has provided a list of documents that will acceptably establish an employee’s identity and employment authorization, either alone or when presented with other documents. Some of these forms expire, and will need to be reverified. This guide has been created by our HR Pros with tips on the Form I-9 and what to do when an employee’s forms will need to be reverified.
Also join us on February 14, 2019 for our free webinar, Form I-9: Keys to Compliance at 12pm MST. One continuing education credit will be available from SHRM, HRCI, and APA. Register using the link below.
“An I-9 audit can be an intimidating event. If you haven’t properly completed or maintained your I-9s, it can be a costly one as well. During this session, you’ll learn critical filing and retention requirements so you can be confident that your organization is compliant. We’ll review the various sections of the I-9 in-depth, discuss the acceptable documents needed to complete it properly, and examine the penalties for not complying with the instructions. We’ll also briefly discuss the E-Verify system and provide some best practice suggestions on when to conduct a voluntary internal audit of your I-9 files.”
