Section 3 - Re-hires

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 »

I-9 Form

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.

Remote Employees

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'.

Definition of "Break in Employment" needs stronger parameters

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.

I-9 Form

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 »

M-274 (Rev. 04/30/13) N: Omission in Answer to 23.Q. (Section 2)

M-274 (Rev. 04/30/13) N has an apparent omission in the answer to 23.Q. (on page 44, at the bottom of the column). The following text -- that was included in the answer to the same numbered question in M-274 (Rev. 06/01/11) N -- is omitted: "2. A Form I-94/I-94A containing a temporary I-551 stamp and a photograph of the individual, which is considered a receipt for the Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551)."

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... more »

Native American Tribal Documents

One of the risks to employers and immigration is the use of Tribal Docs in B & C. The document lacks guidance on what is acceptable. More detail should be given if all Native America ID's ( even those not federally recognized such as Piscataway Convoy Tribe) on whether or not the document is acceptable. Also, some tribes have sold their membership ID's to aliens to get them work (Little Shell Pembina). The use of these... more »

Remote employees

With the new form, our remote employees are having difficulty understanding the use of an agent or a notary. Most cities have federal offices of some kind which could help completed these forms. I would also like to see the form changed so that column B and C are interchangeable. It is amazing how often document information is put in the wrong column and then we have to send it back and people get annoyed to have... more »

I9 Form

Why is there the need to have the employees include thier addresses? We will have this information on file for a new hire. Also, it is not entered in E-VErify and in trying to create error free paperwork it would be great to elminate this field all together.

I-9 and Previous Names

I was hoping that something could be done about the "other names used" field on the I-9 form. As far as I'm aware, the purpose of the field is to list previous names in case documentation or records needed to verify work eligibility are in a different name. However, it has the side effect of forcing transgendered people to disclose their status to their employers. As a transgender woman, I do not like being forced... more »

Hispanic Last Names - help!

Our employees routinely interchange and refer to themselves with their two last names. How should they enter their names on the I-9? An HR source told me that both names are their legal last name, so if they put one or both, that was fine, but I want to know for sure how we are to correctly enter names when there is a First, Middle and two Last names.
