The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently issued a Form I-9 Employee Information Sheet which is intended as an employee reference for common Form I-9 questions. The Information Sheet is available at http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/USCIS/Verification/I-9%20Central/Form_I-9_Employee_Information_Sheet.pdf
Federal law requires every employer to complete a Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, for each new employee to verify his or her identity and authorization to work in the United States. While employers are not obligated to provide employees with the Information Sheet or any information apart from the Form I-9 itself, doing so may help both employers and employees by saving time and avoiding misunderstandings with respect to common I-9 questions.
If you have any questions related to this Legal Alert or any other labor and employment law question, please contact Michael Bogdan at 330-497-0700 or toll free at 877-876-9958.
NOTE: This general summary of the law should not be used to solve individual problems since slight changes in the fact situation may require a material variance in the applicable legal advice.
