What is Form I-9?
Form I-9 is the document used to verify identity and employment authorization for individuals seeking employment in the United States. All U.S. employers must complete Form I-9 for each new hire, which includes obtaining acceptable documents confirming identity.
What is E-Verify?
E-Verify is an online system that is utilized to confirm employment eligibility by verifying Form I-9 submissions with records in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration. E-Verify provides results within seconds and currently has over 870,000 employers enrolled. Employers may opt to use E-Verify as a supplement to Form I-9 either as required by law or voluntarily.
There are three steps to complete the verification process:
- Create a case in E-Verify
- E-Verify will display initial case results in a matter of seconds. More action may or may not be required.
- Close the E-Verify Case once a final case result is displayed.
Employment Eligibility Verification: E-Verify and Form I-9
After an offer of employment has been made and accepted, employers are responsible to complete Form I-9 with their new hire.
Verifying employment eligibility is performed through completion of Form I-9. First, the employee completes Section 1 of Form I-9 (on the first day of employment). This is followed by you completing Section 2 when the employee provides documents from List A, or B and C (by day 3 of employment). You can either stop once you’ve completed both sections of Form I-9, or you can complete the form and run the employee through E-Verify (unless you are mandated to use E-Verify).
