An I-9 is an Employment Eligibility Verification. It is intended to verify an employee's identity and employment authorization in order to be employed in the U.S. A company has to ensure the proper completion of an I-9 Form by an employee.
When companies hire remote employees, they may not be physically at the company's location, they still need to complete an I-9 Form on that remote employee. Companies are required to have an Authorized Representative complete the I-9 Form on their behalf. When completing an I-9 Form for a remote employee, the Authorized Representative acts as the company's agent and is responsible for receiving the employee's identity and employment eligibility documents. The Authorized Representative must be physically present with the employee during the document review process, and they must sign and date the I-9 Form attesting to the fact that they have examined the documents presented and that, to the best of their knowledge, the new hire is authorized to work in the United States.
Having a designated Authorized Representative handle the I-9 verification process can help to streamline the onboarding process and reduce administrative burdens for both the company and the remote employee. As a seasoned HR Professional with extensive experience in I-9 compliance, I can help you complete your I-9 Form quickly, accurately, and easily.
