Under Section 2 on the I-9 there is a space under where you fill in the List B and List C documents. I think that you could have a name listed on the documents field under each document with a reminder that if the social security card is in a different name that what is listed on Section 1 of the I-9 Form that this may result in an SSA TENTATIVE NONCONFIRMATION. I feel this would help them focus on the names and reduce... more »
The definition of break in employment is left up to the employer to define. I work with many temp agencies, and they view their employees as "active" even if they are not currently on an assignment, thus I am forced to accept an everify that is several years old. I would like to see tighter parameters around this topic.
With more and more employers utilizing remote employees, it is difficult to get an 'employer agent' to view/verify I-9 documents. Most Notaries in some states are unable to authenticate documents, they can only verify signatures. Guidance is needed from UCIS and E-Verify on how to properly document a remote employee and who can be utilized as an 'employer agent'.
Since the Social Security Administration records (i.e. Social Security Number) is a part of the eVerify system, I suggest that the "expiration" line on List C be used to enter the name as it is on the SSCard. This will encourage employers to enter employees under the name on record with SSA. This will also reduce the number of no match letters that are issued to payroll departments.
Can we please have section 3 expanded for several re-hire (as a second page to the I-9? We have called several times and received different answers to the same question. We are a temporary Job Placement agency, we send an employee to work for 2 weeks we e-verify, then he has a break for 2 days. He then returns to work on assignment for 1 week - we fill in section 3 as a rehire. (Per direction from the help desk-we... more »
Since the form requires the employer to list the documents' issuing authorities in Section 2, it would be great if I-9 Central and/or M-274 would have a section that explains who the issuing authorities are for the List of Acceptable Documents. And maybe include screenshots of where the information can be found on those documents. Thank you!
I just read through the instructions for the new I-9 and saw that fields for an email address and phone number have been added to section one. According to the instructions, the fields are optional. However, the fact that entering this information is optional is not noted on the actual I-9 form. The fields on the I-9 should read: E-mail Address (optional) Telephone Number (optional). I can see where a lot of people will... more »
SS Number box on I-9 has grids, but they restricts the font size if employee fills it out by hand. It's hard for the employer side to see. Please remove the grids! Thanks!
I've recently had occasion to download some pages of the recently updated guide. Although the page numbers appear, the publication doesn't.
It would be very helpful if you could list tthe publication and its edition date, so that when we submit it (in my case to ICE), it is clearly indicated.
on Tuesday may 7 2013 I took part in the USCIS session about the new 1-9 form. it seen that a lot of employor are in the dark about when they should use the 1-9 form. USCIS should hold a couple more sessions on the way the form should be used.
In Maryland, minors are required to have a work permit prior to their first day of work. Please consider using work permits as a form of identification (List B document) for minors.
Presenting your ID to an employer as proof that you are permit to work in the united state is good it prove that DHS and USCIS agencies is working to make Immigration system better by letting the employer verify the status of the employee whit USCIS for social security and income tax payment from the employee pay
To reduce the cost of ink and paper why isn't there a space on the I-9 to enter the everify #. Currently we are printing out and stapling to the I-9. For those companies that scan copies into a paperless vault this would really help and save time and costs.
I am a big fan of E-Verify. But, whoever designed the new Form I-9 (OMB No. 1615-0047) obviously never had to complete the E-Verify form on-line. Having done so for thousands of employees, I was dismayed to discover that the new I-9 consists of 2 pages with essential information on each side. Come-on guys! The least you could have done was put all the information required for E-Verify on one side with the fields... more »
