USCIS Creates I-9 Central

US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced it has launched a new online resource center where users can access the most frequently used form on the agency’s website.

The page, which is called I-9 Central , is dedicated to explaining the I-9, Employee Eligibility Verification form. It also provides both employees and their employers with simple tips and guidance to help the efficiency of the Form I-9 process.

“I-9 Central is the latest in our ongoing efforts to better serve the 7.5 million employers who use Form I-9 every time they hire an employee,” said USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas.

The website includes sections about employer and employee rights and responsibilities, information on documents needed to establish employment authorization and comprehensive instructions on how to fill out the form. It will also discuss common mistakes that applicants should avoid and instructions on how to fix any errors.

To complete an I-9 form, those who are not US citizens must possess documents such as a Permanent Resident Card, a foreign passport that contains a temporary I-551 stamp on an immigrant visa, or an Employment Authorization Document that contains a photo, according to the USCIS website.
