Federal law requires that every employer who recruits, refers for a
fee, or hires an individual for employment in the U.S. must complete
Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.
The Form I-9 process, managed by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration
Services, will help you verify your employee's identity and employment
In 2020, the USCIS issued a new I9 form, which must be used for all
workers starting in August 2020. We will review the changes and all the
important information regarding the I9 process. WE will highlight best
practices and procedures for remote verification, it’s changes to the
E-Verify Process, and other topics the DOL wants employers to know with
the current pandemic.
The I9 and W4 forms are payroll forms that employers MUST RECEIVE during
the hiring process. Employers take a high risk not obtaining them prior
to employment. The IRS and the USCIS both have specific rules on how to
obtain, verify and process these forms. In some cases, penalties for I9
non-compliance can result in jail time, as well as Homeland Security,
the FBI, an USCIS immigration audits. If you don’t use the new W4, it
could result in your company being reviewed for under or over
withholding federal income tax.
So let’s understand all rules that apply to these forms. 2020 is fast
approaching and you won’t want to be left behind. Join Mark Schwartz, a
payroll tax expert, in his fast paced and complete webinar designed to
get you ready NOW.
