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'.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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 »
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.
Add a space on Form I-9 for the E-Verify case number.
