What Is the Purpose of an I-9 Form?

The purpose of an I-9 Form is to verify the employment eligibility of workers hired at US-based businesses. The I-9 Form validates an employee’s identity and confirms that the worker is legally eligible to work in the United States. Every employee must fill out an I-9 Form, whether or not they’re a U.S. citizen. Both the employer and the employee are required by law to fill out the form.

I-9 Violations

Employers who don’t complete and retain I-9 Forms can face severe punishments. Businesses that knowingly hiring and employ unauthorized workers can be fined as much as $16,000 per ineligible employee.

Technical violations aren’t punished immediately. The company is first notified of a violation and given ten business days to correct the error. Technical violations of the I-9 Form can include:

  • Failure to include the employment start date
  • Failure to date either the employee or employer section of the form
  • Failure to disclose that an employee is under 18 years old
  • Failure to include the date an employee was rehired in the section of the form related to rehiring practices
