Avoiding these pricier penalties
Now, in other words, any mistakes made in filling out and filing federal immigration paperwork can be even more costly than before.
Form I-9, also known as the Employment Eligibility Verification form, is a United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) form that verifies the identity and employment authorization of all workers that are employed in the U.S.
Employers must complete the form for every worker they hire, or face the risk of heavy penalties. Both employees and employers (or authorized representatives) must complete the form I-9, which consist of three parts:
- Section one is for employee information and attestation, to be completed by the employee.
- Section two is for employers’ review and verification, and is filled by them.
- Section three is for reverification and rehires.
