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 maintain a 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.
