Tips for Section 2

The following tips should be kept in mind when Human Resources staff complete Section 2 of the I-9 employment verification form. 

bullet

Do not tell the new hire which documents she should bring in. Direct her to the back of the I-9 and tell her that she can pick from the documents there.

bullet

The combination of documents are A OR B and C. Not A and B or A and C.

bullet

The employer must examine original documents. They cannot be photocopies or faxes unless it is a certified copy of a birth certificate.

bullet

The employer must thoroughly complete section two within three days of the commencement of employment.

bullet

A company may choose to keep copies of the section 2 documents along with the I-9. However, if this is done, the policy should be applied to all new hires.

bullet

Receipts for a lost, stolen, or damaged A, B, or C document can be accepted, but it is valid for only 90 days and within those 90 days, the new hire must provide the replacement document. Given the temporary nature of these receipts, the 90 day expiration date must be tracked in the ticker.
