I-9 Compliance and Management Solutions FAQs

If you’re a business owner, in order to hire employees for your company, they need to be authorized to work in the United States. In order to verify the identity and employment authorization of a particular individual being considered for employment, the employer and employee need to complete Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. By completing this form for each employee hired at your company, whether a citizen or noncitizen, you can do your part to help confirm whether an individual is legally allowed to work in the U.S.

I-9 compliance refers to the process taken to verify an employee’s work authorization and identity. With that said, I-9 compliance is crucial for employers for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • Compliance: The primary reason I-9 compliance is important for employers is to remain compliant with the federal government. Federal law requires all employers to verify the employment authorization of each employee by completing Form I-9.
  • Prevent penalties: Because completing Form I-9 for each employee is required under federal law, employers can face expensive penalties and fines that not only cost their business money but can put their entire organization at risk.
  • Eliminate discrimination: Proper I-9 management can help prevent discrimination and ensure that each employee is hired based on their merits, not their national origin, citizenship or immigration status.

These are just some reasons why I-9 compliance is essential for employers and why enlisting an I-9 solution to help with the I-9 verification process can help protect your business.

Businesses can conduct their own I-9 verification process or work with a third-party I-9 management solution. Investing in an I-9 solution can help your company in a variety of ways, such as ensuring accuracy and compliance. There are several reasons why working with the right I-9 compliance partner is important, such as:

  • Security: The I-9 verification process requires handling private and sensitive information. A trusted I-9 solution partner can help ensure all confidential information and documents are handled carefully, stored securely and protected for privacy.
  • Accuracy: Completing and processing I-9 Forms can be complex. I-9 solutions pair you with a professional partner with the necessary background and experience to ensure all I-9 Forms are completed correctly.
  • Compliance: One of the primary benefits of an I-9 management partner is compliance. Because I-9 Forms are required by federal law, an I-9 partner can help ensure forms are completed accurately and on time to prevent penalties and fines that can hurt your business.
  • User-friendly operations: Considering the number of fields to be completed for the Form I-9 the software can help minimize human error by ensuring accuracy through proper validation. The software can also ensure compliant document tracking and accurate reporting.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency of the Department of Homeland Security, requires the completion of the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to establish that an employee is eligible to work in the U.S. In addition to proving employment eligibility, the Form I-9 is used to verify an individual's identity by requiring the individual to provide the employer with acceptable documentation as evidence of identity and employment authorization. An I-9 management solution can ensure timely and proper completion of the Form I-9.

You are required to complete and retain a Form I-9 for every employee you hire for employment in the United States regardless of citizenship or nationality.

Job applicants should not complete an I-9. Only individuals who have actually been extended and accepted an offer of employment should complete an I-9.

The exceptions to this requirement are as follows:

  • Individuals hired on or before Nov. 6, 1986, who are continuing in their employment and have a reasonable expectation of employment at all times.
  • Individuals hired for employment in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) on or before Nov. 27, 2009.
  • Individuals employed for casual domestic work in a private home on a sporadic, irregular, or intermittent basis.
  • Independent contractors
  • Individuals providing labor who are employed by a contractor providing contract services.
  • Individuals not physically working in the United States.
  • A self-employed person does not need to complete an I-9 on his or her own behalf unless the person is an employee of a business entity, such as a corporation or partnership.
  • Unremunerated individuals like unpaid interns are not required to complete an I-9.

I-9 noncompliance can come with several fees and penalties that can hurt your company’s bottom line and reputation. While penalties and fines can vary on a case-by-case basis, general penalties you can incur for noncompliance include the following:

  • Civil penalties: For I-9 paperwork violations or uncorrected technical errors, employers can face a penalty between $272 to $2,701, increasing the penalty amount with each offense.
  • Debarment: Employers who are noncompliant with I-9 rules and regulations can face debarment from certain federal contracts.
  • Criminal actions: In some cases, employers who willingly hire unauthorized employees can face criminal actions, such as fines or imprisonment.

These are some of the penalties you can face for failing to comply with I-9 regulations. In extreme cases, repeat offenders may have their business closed or forfeit their assets.

When your employee’s employment authorization or, in most cases, employment authorization documentation expires, you must reverify to ensure your employee is still authorized to work.

Employers should not reverify:

  • U.S. citizens and noncitizen nationals;
  • Lawful permanent residents who presented a Form I-551, Permanent Resident or Alien Registration Receipt card for Section 2, including conditional residents; or
  • List B documents

If you rehire your employee within 3 years of the date that a previous Form I-9 was completed, you may either complete a new Form I-9 for your employee or complete Supplement B of the previously completed Form I-9. 

You are not required to update Form I-9 when your employee has a legal name change. However, it is recommended that you maintain correct information on Forms I-9 and note any name changes in Supplement B.
