The I-9 Form should be revised to permit an employee and the employer to write not only the Employee's Permanent Resident number, but the card number (from the back of the card), as well. E-Verify cannot be run without both numbers.
Maybe have a webinar about the electronic I-9s and what companies the USCIS approves?
Sometimes it is difficult to know if there are different guidelines and also if the electronic I-9s that are being used are compliant.
The FAQ page on I-9 Central will only print the answers if the user first clicks all of the + signs to reveal the answers. A few suggestions to consider: 1. Provide a single button to reveal all answers rather than requiring the user to click each + sign individually. 2. When printing the FAQ page automatically print all of the answers. 3. Allow an individual question and answer to be printed without printing all FAQs.... more »
For an Employer to be able to track Veterans who are onboarding, the I-9 form should have a place to acknowledge if a new hire is a veteran and be able to enter this information in E-verify system.
For ease of submission, it would be great if we could allow potential new hires (past the offer but not yet started with the company) to submit their information for Section 1. I have seen instances before where you can input the new hire's e-mail address and it will auto-generate an e-mail to them asking them to complete Section 1. Then when they come in with documentation, they will not have to fill out a form-- we... more »
Since DHS appears to be cracking down on states that issue driver's licenses that are not compliant with REAL ID by not accepting such documents for air travel or access to federal facilities is it possible that the law could be modified so that non-compliance documents are not acceptable for Form I-9? Some of the states at risk include Alaska, California, Illinois, Missouri, New Jersey and South Carolina. DHS recently... more »
I am to understand E-Verify checks the Social Security System to make sure the Social Security Card is a match to the person on the I-9. If the system checks the Social Security System to make sure the information matches. Why can’t we put a person in the E-verify without a Social Security Number? (1) Have a place where they can put the date and place they applied for the Social Security Card. (2) If the system... more »
Post the example of a "Signature Waived" green card (without the Lawful Permanent Resident’s actual signature) on I-9 Central along with the example of a signed card on the page located at:
Employees need to better understand the benefits to them of including their email address in Section 1 of Form I-9. By entering their email, the employee is assured of being notified by E-Verify in the event of a TNC. This is important because, for a variety of reasons, the employer may not notify the employee. Employers need to know that the email field is an optional field and can only be entered in E-Verify if the... more »
Why can't the US military ID be used for both B&C columns in the acceptable requirements list? The military ID has the SSAN number listed on it and as long as the military ID is current it should be accepted for both column requirements. Am I missing something here? The Native American Tribal document can be used in both places.
The Dept. of State issues three documents to prove a citizen's birth abroad (Consular Report of Birth Abroad (Form FS-240, FS-545, or a DS-1350), but the Form FS-240 is not listed with the other two documents on the I-9 Central List C page. Add this document and an example to the I-9 Central List C page.
Given the rise in questions to government agencies, attorneys, and electronic I-9 suppliers regarding TPS and DED, it would be most helpful to add a link to DED information to I-9 Central and highlight the existing TPS link and new DED link. TPS and DED information should be added to the Acceptable Documents and FAQ pages too.
Re The list of acceptable documents - List C, #8 - please list which documents would be included. M-274 - re the list of sample List C documents, please expand the list to include I-94 and Cert. of Naturalization. These documents are not listed and it would be nice to have a sample image These would be options for Section 3 Work authorization updates so the Handbook should at least list them as such and include sample... more »
Remove Section 3 and require a new I-9 to be completed for all new hires, rehired, and reverifications. In addition, require an E-Verify case to be created for each I-9. This would standardize the process and improve compliance rates. However, it may require legislation to implement.
I think the Other Names Used (if any) line should say, Other LEGAL Names Used (if any)
