Form I-9

Bad Form

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 »

Form I-9

Optional E-Mail

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 »

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 »

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 »

Acquisitions

I have asked this question several times before. Our company has completed several acquisitions over the past two years. We have noted during our due diligence that the Form I-9s were non-compliant. So as the Handbook for Employers states, we can prepare new Form I-9s. We do not have HR personnel in the field so when we have 250 new Form I-9s to certify and then enter into E-Verify, it is extremely difficult to meet the... more »

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 »
