The Federal I-9: What You Need To Know

The I-9 Form is a legal document required by the Federal Government used by an employer to:

  1. Verify an employee's identity
  2. Establish a worker's eligibility to accept employment in the U.S.

All new hires must complete their form on or before their first day of employment.
