Employers And Employees Have Responsibilities To Comply
When hiring new employees, employers have certain responsibilities to comply with U.S. immigration law. One of these responsibilities includes the completion of the I-9 form which verifies the employee’s eligibility to work in the U.S. Certain parts of the I-9 are completed by the employee and other parts are completed by the employer. Employees must provide verification of this eligibility by presenting certain documentation to the employer.
Understanding the different documentation that is acceptable, the penalties to employers and employees for noncompliance and any updates or changes to the law or applicable forms can be challenging. We can advise employers on the importance of retaining I-9 forms and copies of documentation as well as counsel them on how to verify certain documentation. We also assist employees with understanding how to obtain appropriate verification documents and answer any questions about issues with their I-9 form.
