Form I-9 compliance provides the newest, most efficient methods of responding to the federal Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) and enables employers to easily conduct legal right to work Form I-9 employment verifications on new employees.
What will the I-9 search tell me?
It will let you know if your applicant or new hire is legally able to work in the US . Every employer is legally required to prove this, and non-compliance can result in fines anywhere from $100 to $3,000.
Why is the I-9 the best identity search available?
Many documents can be used to show identity and work eligibility, but the I-9 is the only fool-proof way to be sure the information you are getting is accurate. I-9 compliance was the first federal verification method approved by the Social Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security for I-9 employment verification.
How does I-9 work?
Using information on the I-9 form, a person's SSN or Immigration "A" number is electronically verified for accuracy. Then a unique Department of Homeland Security verification number is supplied to verity the results.
Its fast, easy, and provides peace of mind. The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) legally mandates that U.S. employers verify the employment eligibility status of newly-hired employees and makes it unlawful for employers to knowingly hire or continue to employ unauthorized workers. With the passage of the IRCA, founders of Form I-9 compliance worked closely with the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to develop the original Form I-9 and they have been providing I-9 consulting services since.
