Workplace audits and I-9 inspections have become common. And the fines staggering. We recommend all employers review their I-9 files annually and have them inspected by an immigration attorney. Here are some answers to common questions employers have.
What is required to verify employment authorization?
The Form I-9 is the basic requirement to verify work authorization. The back of the form lists the acceptable documents that a new hire must produce to verify identity and employment eligibility.
Who must complete an I-9?
Employers must fill out and keep a Form I-9 for every person hired after November 5, 1986.
What about people who just apply for a job with my company?
No. You only need to complete an I-9 only for people you actually hire.
When should a new hire complete the I-9?
Ideally on the day the worker begins employment, but it is required to be completed within three business days of the date employment begins. If the necessary documents were lost, stolen or destroyed, a receipt for replacement documents must be provided within the three days. If an employee presents a receipt for a replacement document, then the actual document must be produced within 90 days from the date of employment.
Can I terminate an employee who fails to produce the required documents within three business days?
Yes. If this is your company’s policy then apply it uniformly, not just to someone who appears to not be a citizen.
What documents are legally acceptable for the Form I-9 purposes?
The employer must verify both identity and authorization to work in the United States. On the back of the I-9 Form there is a list of acceptable documents. Here is the list of acceptable I-9 documents.
- List A documents establish both identity and employment authorization.
- List B documents only establish identity.
- List C documents only establish employment authorization.
