What employers need to know about I-9 remote verification


Every employer in the United States is responsible for ensuring proper completion of the Form I-9 for all individuals hired for employment. The Form I-9 helps employers verify their staff’s status and eligibility to work in the U.S. It also assists in helping employees ensure their legal information is correct and up-to-date.

While it’s an important document, the Form I-9 is often referred to as one of the longest 2-page documents HR professionals get to work with, with over 1500 rules that must be followed. Employers with incomplete or inaccurate Form I-9’s risk audits, costly fines, and legal penalties.
