What EVERY Employer Needs to Know When Hiring:  Form I-9


We all hear a lot about the workforce in America but as an employer how do you document that your employees are legally able to work in the U.S.?  The Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, is required by Federal U.S. law for employers of all sizes and all industries across the country.   The Form allows employers to document the employment eligibility of their employees but can be audited so employers need to know the timeframe required and the steps for proper completion.  We are here to help get all of the answers you need to the following questions and more!


·         Must I make photocopies?

·         Do I have to enter N/A in unused fields?

·         What if I can’t see my employee in person?

·         Who can sign Section 2 for the employer?

·         What if the employee’s work authorization expires?

·         How long should I keep the Form for my employees?


Join us for a free 60 minute webinar to learn how your company can reduce liability by properly completing the Form I-9 as well as the benefits of its electronic companion, E-Verify.  Don’t get stressed…get answers!  Presented by subject matter experts from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service at the Department of Homeland Security.
