Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9)

Within three business days of the start date of employment, federal law requires employers to verify the identity and employment authorization of all newly hired (or rehired) employees by ensuring each employee’s completion of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification (within three business days of the contract start date for faculty).

Verification is a two-step process:

  1. Complete Section One of the online Form I-9 on or prior to your start date of employment
    • This secure link will also be emailed to you immediately upon hire
    • Review Online Form I-9 Instructions (PDF)
    • Section One should not be completed online until you are within 60 days of your start date of employment (or for faculty, within 60 days of the contract start date)
  2. Present original, unexpired documentation to verify your identity and employment authorization to complete Section Two of the I-9
    • Present documentation in-person at the Office of Human Resources located in 200 Grace Hall
    • Must be completed within three business days of your employment start date
