I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification

Protecting Your Employment Interests With Informed I-9 Assistance

The federal government takes immigration laws seriously and is regularly taking steps to reduce and eliminate the number of illegal immigrants working in the U.S. Therefore, if your business is facing an I-9 audit or needs assistance ensuring work site compliance, an experienced California employment eligibility verification attorney can be extremely beneficial to protecting your interests. At Litwin & Smith, we advise businesses and foreign nationals with all aspects of completing I-9 employment eligibility forms and ensuring compliance with United States immigration laws.

I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Compliance And Assistance

The I-9 employment eligibility verification forms must be completed for every employee hired after November 1986. The employee is responsible for completing section one of the I-9 employment eligibility verification form.

The employer is responsible for ensuring the employee completed section one of the I-9 employment eligibility verification form and for completing section two of the I-9 employment eligibility verification form, as well as to verify that proper documentation has been provided to demonstrate an employee’s eligibility to work in the U.S.

There are strict time requirements for completing the I-9 employment eligibility verification forms by both the employee and the employer. In addition, there are strict requirements regarding the retention of those forms. Failure to comply with these requirements can result in significant fines and other consequences.
