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

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.

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 »

List of Issuing Authorities

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!

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)."

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.

Post TPS and DED links and/or information on I-9 pages

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.
