What is Form I-9, and Who Must Comply?
All US Employers must complete a Form I-9 for each person hired after November 6, 1986. The Form I-9 was established into law under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. The form requires employers to review and record data from the individual’s original identity and employment authorization document(s), and assess whether the document(s) reasonably appear to be genuine and related to the individual presenting them. In cases for subcontracted workers, subcontractors must be put on notice and sign off on a policy that requires properly documented workers.
