December 23, 2015 6:09 pm
As an employer, you are responsible for completing an I-9 form for all new and rehired employees hired after November 6, 1986. Here are some tips for completing these forms correctly:
  • Be sure to use the most current version of the I-9.
  • Make sure your employees complete Employee Section 1 properly.
  • Keep copies of acceptable documents for all
  • Do not accept social security cards that have not been signed.
  • Do not allow untrained staff to complete and maintain I-9 forms.
Sierra HR Partners is available to audit your I-9 documents and practices, and to train your staff responsible for completing I-9s, which can reduce or limit your exposure to significant penalties. Additional employer resources may be found by visiting “I-9 Central” on the Department of Homeland Security’s website.
