What is Form I-9?

All individuals hired for employment in the United States have to verify their identity with their employer. To that end, it is necessary to complete an I-9. Both employees and employers are involved in this matter and have to prepare the document according to the required criteria. By filling and signing in the blank, the employee confirms their employment eligibility.

In order to provide complete information, it is necessary to attach identifying documents. The list required documents can be found on the last page of the form.

The I-9 contains three sections:

  1. The first section provides details regarding the employee’s personal data, citizenship or immigration status. An individual has to sign i9 as well as the current date.
  2. Section 2 has to be filled out by the employer to ensure that all sections are properly completed.
  3. In the last section is used for reverification and rehires. At the end of the I-9, the employer is required to certify the blank.

The document must be retained by the superior for three years after the date of hire. It must be available to U.S. Government officials from the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Labor or Department of Justice.

The recipient may place a mark by typing, drawing or uploading it from any internet-connected device. The sender will receive a notification when the document has been certified. Thereafter, the employer has to review all provided data, complete the part intended for his/her notes and add a signature.
