Understanding the I9 Form
The most important piece of documentation in hiring an immigrant worker is the I9 form. It is an essential paper, that must be provided by the employer, if the employment agreement is going to have any legal standing. There is no exception with this document and it must be filed in time for the first day of the employment period. It is divided into two parts, of which, the first must be signed by the employee and the second by the employer. Assuming every piece of information is correctly provided, then this document will allow for the eligibility of the worker in question.
Who Needs an I9?
The I9 is a necessary document in all types of immigrant worker enrollment. Not only is it required for those working with a long-term United States visa, but it is also required for any international who intends on gaining employment in the country. This means, even if the employee in question is only intended to be operating for a few days, using a temporary working visa or is any other sort of non-citizen worker, the I9 is imperative.
At the end of the day, the sole responsibility for this document being filled out falls on the employer. No matter the scale of your business, this is a paper that you must be taking seriously and handling appropriately.
