I-9 Verification Attorney in Broward County, FL
I-9 employer verification forms are very important documents that must be properly maintained on behalf of each employee in a business, regardless of whether that employee is a temporary worker, a lawful permanent resident, or a U.S. citizen. The employee is responsible for completing Section 1, Employee Information and Verification of the Form I-9. This should be done by the first day of his or her employment.
The employer is responsible for reviewing this information and then filling out Section 2, Employer Review and Verification. Section 2 should be completed within three days of employment unless the employee will be working for less than three days, in which case it should be completed on the first day. Section 3 must be completed if and when the employee's previous work authorization expires and must be updated. This section of the I-9 form does not apply to employees who are permanent residents and U.S. citizens.
