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. Tulane requires that employees do not start working until the form has been completed.

To complete the form, all new hires must provide documents that verify their identity and work eligibility. Employees must provide originals of the documents. Copies cannot and will not be accepted.

The list of acceptable documents can be found below.
