Rated 4.27/5 based on 695 customer reviews

Additionally, the following documents should not be re-verified: an expired U. Passport or Passport Card, an Alien Registration Receipt Card, or a List B document that has expired Expired documents are no longer acceptable for Form I-9.

However, the USCIS Handbook for Employers (page 43) specifically states that "You may accept Employment Authorization Documents (Forms I-766) and Permanent Resident Cards (Forms I-551) that appear to be expired on their face, but have been extended by USCIS. An employer may not refuse to hire because work authorization will expire in the future.

While all citizens are authorized to work here, it is not always easy to recognize who is and is not a citizen because of the diverse heritage of our country.

Employers must fill out an I-9 form for every employee, not just those who appear to be non-citizens. You need to complete Form I-9 only for people you actually hire.

If you do not participate in E-Verify, and you choose to photocopy the documents presented for an I-9 form, you must photocopy the documents of ALL new hires, not just those you think may be aliens.The USCIS Handbook for Employers (page 44) states, If you participate in E-Verify and the employee presents a document used as part of Photo Matching, currently the U. passport and passport card, Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551) and the Employment Authorization Document (Form I-766), you must retain a photocopy of the document he or she presents.Other documents may be added to Photo Matching in the future.The employer must also see proof of authorization to work such as a U. Social Security Card (a Social Security Card that says "Not Valid for Employment" is not acceptable), a birth certificate showing birth in the U. or a valid Immigration document showing work authorization such as an employment authorization card or an H-1 or other working visa approval notice. The employer cannot require more than the minimum needed to comply with the I-9 form.The employer cannot specify which documents it wants to see. If the documents reasonably appear on their face to be genuine and to relate to the person presenting them, you must accept them.
