What is I-9 Employment Verification?

The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 requires employers to hire only persons who may legally work in the United States-which are...

  • Citizens
  • Nationals of the United States
  • Legal Permanent Residents
  • Aliens authorized to work

We do not discriminate against individuals on the basis of nation origin or citizenship.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Form I-9 is used by the employer to verify that persons are eligible to work in the United States and must be completed at the time of hire or rehire.

The Law Requires:

  • The employee must have an opportunity to review the I-9 instructions
  • The employee completes Section 1 of the I-9 Form
  • Original documents are reviewed, establishing both identity and employment eligibility
  • The I-9 Completer properly complete Section 2 of the I-9 Form

Employers are not to specify which documents an employee can use to prove their identity and employment eligibility. The employee must be given an opportunity to review the list of acceptable documents and choose either one from List A OR one from List B AND one from List C.
