What is an I-9 Form?
In 1986, in an effort to control illegal immigration, Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA). IRCA forbids employers from knowingly hiring individuals who do not have work authorization in the United States. The employment eligibility verification provisions, and sanctions, of IRCA are found in Section 274A of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification) helps employers to verify individuals who are authorized to work in the United States. The I-9 form must be completed for every new employee hired.
Newly hired employees must complete and sign Form I-9 no later than the first day of employment.A new employee must present documentation that establishes his/her identity and employment authorization. Unexpired documentation must be presented within three days of beginning employment.
