The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) requires U.S. employers to verify the employment eligibility status of newly hired employees. This includes U.S. citizens, and makes it unlawful for employers to knowingly hire or continue to employ unauthorized workers.
To prove employment eligibility, employees must complete and sign a right to work Form I-9. Employers must be able to produce the information upon request of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Additionally, companies must reverify Form I-9 information within three years of the date on which the employee supplied the information.
For more complete guidelines about Form I-9 compliance, refer to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Web site (www.uscis.gov), and then perform a search using the keywords Form I-9.
You can collect, electronically store and retrieve, and reverify Form I-9 information from areas of the application that support employment processes and helps you to:
Ensure that all members of your workforce are legally authorized to work.
Increase efficiency in processing Form I-9 verification information.
Improve the accuracy of Form I-9 information.
Streamline retrieval of Form I-9 information to make government inspections smoother.
You can use the document management system to upload and save signed Form I-9 documents for each employee.
You can use the Renew Form I-9 alarm list report to determine which employees that you must reverify Form I-9 information for. To prepare for a BICE inspection, you can use the Form I-9 report to print Form I-9 information for all or selected employees.
