The Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification

There is no excuse for ignoring your responsibility to the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. Every employer is responsible for completing the Form I-9 timely and accurately, updating the form when required, and retaining the form in accordance with the law.

The law requires every employer to complete the Form I-9 on the first day the employee starts to work. The I-9 requires the employee to attest, under penalty of felony perjury, they are authorized to work in the U.S. The employer then must examine documents provided by the employee to verify the new hire's identity and work eligibility.

An ICE document inspection is a full audit of your company's I-9 forms and documents. Everything matters! It is not enough to have a Form I-9 on file for all employees. The form must be complete and accurate or you will pay significant fines. The more employees you have, the higher your risk.I9 compliance
