authorization documents to verify the worker's legal ability to work.
Failure to on the part of the unlawful worker and the employer to have
a worker's employment eligibility verification on hand could result
in serious legal action. If you face legal problems as a result of employment
eligibility verification, it is very important to seek out a Tampa immigration
attorney immediately. An attorney can minimize the negative impact of

Form I-9 and Federal Stipulations
Every employer is required by law to fill out Form I-9 to verify the identity
and employment authorization for each worker. Employers are expected to
Form I-9 on file for every employee. While federal law stipulates that employers
take certain steps to document employment eligibility, federal law also
prohibits discrimination during this process. Discrimination in any way
during the documentation of employment eligibility is a punishable offense
that should not be tolerated. Non-US citizens authorized to work in this
country do not have to provide more information regarding their eligibility
than required under federal law.
