Form I-9

Make form I-9 an online form

Let's make Form I-9 an online form (Section 1, at least). When matched with E-Verify, the paper form seems redundant and inefficient.


There's too much data entry. The employee has to fill out the form, and the employer has to reenter the information into E-Verify. Let's cut out the middle man.


Here's what I suggest:


Make Section 1 available online.


1. The employer gives the employee a link to the form, and s/he fills out the name, DOB, SSN, and List A, or B and C data (with option for attachments for scanned documents).


2. This information is sent to the employer


3. The employer enters in the hire date (section 2 information)


4. E-Verify provides the case details (and maybe generates an electronic I-9 with entered information).


All of this could be done with ease on a smartphone or tablet, too. No need to re-enter data twice. Not to mention less paper.


Everybody wins.
