All employers must complete and retain a Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States, including citizens and noncitizens.

Employers are required to examine the employment eligibility and identity documents an employee presents to determine whether the documents reasonably appear to be genuine and relate to the individual. Employers must record the document information on the Form I-9 and keep a copy on file.

Woods Rogers protects businesses by helping them comply with I-9 to ensure documentation is legal and approved. We also assist with any audits regarding compliance.

I-9 Compliance is a regular topic at the annual Woods Rogers Labor and Employment Seminars.
