3-day rule

I would like to see the 3-day rule be changed to 6-day rule. If I hire someone on Tuesday, then I am out the rest of the week, I've missed the 3-day window; if I'm schudule to be on vacation for a week; there is no one else, in our company, that could do this. Most people take a week vacation. I would think most companies have only one (1) PR/HR person. I'm strongly asking that this be changed.

  1. I strongly agree with this. I am the only person that completes the I9 and when I am on vacation when a new hire comes in, I have to come back in and complete the verifications and form. Need more time!

  2. Completely agree - we have remove job sites making it very difficult to get the paperwork faxed or until they get within cell phone range or line service.

  3. We also have several locations and 3 days is a very short window when we are waiting for paperwork to arrive from another locations. Also, most individuals seem to have a problem coming up with the required docs and we can't wait for them to start, find their docs and meet the 3 days deadline. 5 to 6 days would be very helpful.

  4. Changing from 3-6 days to completes the verifications forms 1-9 would be a good idea but that would have to be implement by DHS E verify and USCIS

  5. Agreed. We have employees who inevitably will forget their documents or only bring copies. Doesn't matter how many emails I send with CAPs, bolding, red letters, etc. - some new employee don't bring it. We also have remote sites that employees will start at. If I can't get there on day 1, it further limits the time frame for the employee to bring the correct documentation.

  6. You need a back-up person who can fill in behind you. We currently have 3 staff who can do I-9 and everify and we also act as auditor for each other (to make sure form is properly completed) to reduce the risk of errors. Even if you are a small company there should be at least 2 I-9 agents.

  7. The law must be changed to extend the time allowed to complete Form I-9 and E-Verify. Keep in mind that no matter how many days the employer is given to complete Form I-9 that there will still be late completions. This also means that unauthorized employees will be allowed to work longer before completing Form I-9 and E-Verify. Employers should make sure their standard operating procedure manuals cover when Form I-9 and E-Verify are to be completed and that they train on these policies. Also, the Form I-9 process can be done prior to the first day of work for pay so moving it up can help eliminate late completions, especially for Section 1.
