Form I-9 Definition

Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, is required to confirm the identity and U.S. employment eligibility of a new employee according to the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services).

Form I-9 Extended Definition
Employers are required to complete a Form I-9 within the first three days of employment. New employees must bring in specific documents to confirm their identities and work eligibility (e.g., passport, driver’s license, birth certificate, etc.).

Acceptable documents are grouped into three lists: A, B, and C. Consult these lists on Form I-9 to determine what document or documents an employee needs to bring.
