Review: Form I-9

November 15, 2010

All current employees must have completed I-9s on file. Employers are also required to maintain the I-9 forms of former employees for the later of three years from the date of hire, or one year from the date of termination.

The form I-9s should be inspected to ensure they are completed properly. Deficiencies and missing information should be corrected, dated and initialed by either the employee (Section 1 of the form) or the employer (Section 2 of the form).

Any I-9s for terminated employees that do not need to be maintained should be purged.

Exempt wage and hour classifications, independent contractors, I-9 forms and employee handbooks are just some of the many areas that we suggest employers review to ensure legal compliance as we move into the New Year.
