The I-9, one of the most common forms seen in the workplace. At first glance the I-9 is so simple it seems impossible to mess-up. Its simplicity however is what makes it more likely to be overlooked. Are you overlooking a simple mistake that could prove costly for your business?
Here Are 3 Easy Things You Can Do as an Employer to Comply With the USCIS I-9 Regulations:
1) Read and Refer to the Handbook for Employers (M-274)
The M-274 is published by USCIS to help employers better understand the purpose of the I-9. The handbook can be found here.
2) Store Your I-9 Forms in One Place; Separate From Other Personnel Files
A three-ring binder with only I-9s works well!
3) Perform internal audits regularly.
Always a good idea to keep things tidy.
