Business owners should be proactive in confirming work eligibility before hiring a new employee. Compared to dealing with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, internally addressing issues right up front is a lot easier. The Form I-9 is the form used to verify that an employee is eligible to work in the United States. Many employers have questions about the Form I-9. Is it better to prepare the Form I-9 before an employee starts work or after? Which sections should be completed and by whom? Can you request too much documentation? Should the completed I-9 Forms be kept in the personnel files?
You’ll learn the answers to these questions and much more from the Top Ten I-9 Tips in this month’s HRCast, a recording provided by our team of HR Pros and available exclusively on MyHRSupportCenter. These tips include information on preparing, reviewing, and storing I-9 Forms as well as additional valuable information.
