Authorization to Complete I-9 Forms

Human Resource Information System (HRIS)

Slide 1 of 49


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has issued a revised I-9 Form, Employment Eligibility Verification to comply with the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1997 (IIRIRA).

The Act mandates the number of documents that employers may accept from new hires as eligibility verification be reduced.

This form has been updated to comply with the 1997 regulation that revised the List of Acceptable Documents.

The date this becomes effective has been extended to 12/26/07.

Slide 2 of 49


The due date/deadline for submitting a Form I-9 for new employees is within 72 hours/3 days from the employees’ first day of work.

It is recommended that this form be submitted by the first day of work to avoid possible delays.

Slide 3 of 49


To insure that ASU adheres to this new mandate, Human Resources at ASU now requires that all staff who are responsible for submitting I-9 forms be authorized.

To become authorized you simply need to complete this 30 minute course and answer a few test questions at the end.

A PDF document of the Form I-9 is available for your reference in the Resource area of this course.

Slide 4 of 49

why authorization
Why Authorization?
  • Submitting a late or incorrect Form I-9 to Human Resources may cause these problems:
  • It may affect the individual’s start date. The new employee has 72 hours from their start date to complete and turn in the I-9. If it is late their start date is affected, which could delay their first pay check.
  • If it is the department’s or ASU's fault (mistakes) it can delay when the new employee receives their first check.

  • Please review and ensure the employee has filled in all the required information completely. Review the information and compare it to the employee’s documents. Verify that the name is the same as it appears on the passport and that the date of birth is entered correctly. The name and date of birth is also noted on both the passport and the Form I-94. Check both.

Question 2

Q. What is the difference between the revised Form I-9 and the old one?

A. Instructions regarding Section 1 of Form I-9 now indicate that the employee is not obliged to provide the Social Security Number in Section 1 of Form I-9, unless he or she is employed by an employer who participates in E-Verify. The section on Photocopying and Retaining Form I-9 now includes information about electronically signing and retaining I-9 forms.

Slide 38 of 49

Question 3

Q. Can I accept documents that used to be on the Form I-9 but aren’t now?

  • No. Employers may only accept documents listed on the List of Acceptable Document on Form I-9. When re-verifying employees, employers should ensure that they use the new Form I-9 with its updated list of acceptable documents.

NOTE: The ORIGINAL documents must be used to collect this information. ASU CANNOT accept photocopies.

Slide 39 of 49

Question 4

Q. Are there any changes in the way the new Form I-9 is completed?

A. No. The updated form should be completed exactly the same way as the old one was. The only difference is the types of documents that employers may accept in Section 2.

Slide 40 of 49

Question 5

Q. Is the Form I-9 available in different languages?

A. The form I-9 is available in English and Spanish. However, only employers in Puerto Rico may have employees complete the Spanish version for their records.Employers in the 50 states and other U.S. territories may use the Spanish version as a translation guide for Spanish-speaking employees, but must complete the English version and keep it in the employer’s records. Employees may also use or ask for a translator/preparer to assist them in completing the form.

Slide 41 of 49

Question 6

Q. What versions of Form I-9 are valid for use?

A. As of November 7, 2007, the form I-9 with a revision date of June 5, 2007 is the only version of the form that is valid for use. The revision date is printed on the lower right corner of the form and states “(Rev. 06-05-07)N”. All previous versions of Form I-9, in English or Spanish, are no longer valid. The 1988 version of Form I-9 in Spanish expired in 1991.Always note that the correct revision date of 06-05-07 is on the lower right corner of any form you work with.

Slide 42 of 49

Question 7

Q. When should employers begin using the version of Form I-9 marked with a revision date of “(Rev. 06-05-07)N”?

A. Employers must use the amended Form I-9 (Rev. 06/05/07)N for all individuals hired on or after November 7, 2007. However, DHS recognizes that employers should be afforded a period of time to transition to the amended Form I-9. DHS will publish a Notice the Federal Register announcing that is will not seek penalties against an employer for using a previous version of the Form I-9 during a 30 day transition period that begins on date of publication of the Notice. After the transition period, employers who fail to use Form I-9 (Rev. 06/05/07)N may be subject to all applicable penalties under section 274A of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1324a, as enforced by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Slide 43 of 49

In reference to Question 7:

Q. What is the regulation for use of the Form I-9?

  • The form will be kept by the employer and made available for inspection by officials of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Department of Labor and Office of Special Counsel for Immigration Related Unfair Employment Practices.
  • The Office of Human Resources is responsible for the storage and tracking of I-9's to be compliant with Federal Law.

Slide 44 of 49

Question 8

Q. Do I need to complete the new version of Form I-9 for all my employees or just the new hires as of December 24th, 2007?

A. Employers only need to complete the new version of Form I-9 (Rev. 06/05/07)N for new employees. Employers do not need to complete new forms for existing employees. However, employers must use the Form I-9 (Rev. 06/05/07)N when their employees require re-verification.

Slide 45 of 49

Question 9

Q. What is a common problem the Office of Human Resources finds when processing Form I-9s?

  • A common problem is finding forms that are not signed or dated!

Even if the Form I-9 is certified via a notary, it must still be signed. The Department is still responsible for this signature.
