Section 274A of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) requires employers to hire only individuals who are legally eligible to work in the US. The I-9 form is the key to compliance with this requirement and is used by US employers to verify the identity and work authorization of all individuals hired to work in the United States. The law requires employers to verify the individual’s identity and eligibility for employment by requiring the employee to produce documentation that verifies who they are, and that they are authorized to work in the US. This requirement applies to all employees – US and non-US citizens alike. Therefore, it's important to understand the requirements to be able to comply with the law. This course provides an introduction to I-9 compliance, focusing on the purpose of the form, who must complete it, when to complete it, how to use it to verify employment, and the legal compliance requirements associated with the law. USCIS has issued a new Form I-9 (edition date 08/01/23) which has undergone some major improvements and will be discussed in this course. It also provides a brief discussion about employing non-US citizens. These course materials and content are for informational purposes only and do not constitute legal advice.
