What is Form I-9?

The Form I-9 is designed to help employers verify that an individual is authorized to work in the United States. To comply with the law, employers must verify the identity and employment eligibility of each person they hire, complete and retain a Form I-9 for each employee, and refrain from discriminating against individuals on the basis of national origin or citizenship.

Electronic Form I-9 Management Software Improves Compliance

The paper Form I-9 process is highly error-prone. Electronic solutions can process compliant Form I-9s in a fraction of the time it takes to process paper forms. Some electronic Form I-9  systems, including Tracker I-9 Complete™, are also integrated with E-Verify, allowing employers to submit information about new hires to government databases instantly and securely in real-time.

Using Form I-9 management software that supports E-Verify, organizations that include E-Verify in their new hire onboarding process can simplify their work and perform all tasks with a single password and a single user interface to learn.  By automatically filling information from the electronic Form I-9 record to open an E-Verify case, duplicate data entry and subsequent errors can be avoided right from the start. These systems can:

  • Offer verification of social security numbers against government databases
  • Integrate with a company’s existing office and HR management software
  • Help employers avoid costly errors and liability
  • Catch mistakes commonly made when filling out paper I-9s

In addition to these features, Tracker I-9 Complete:

  • Automates audit trails of all required actions and simplifies I-9 self-auditing through easily-customized reports.
  • Reduces audit risk exposure by automatically purging Form I-9s that should be eliminated according to the three-year/one-year rule.
  • Prevents over-documentation by showing only the ID documents applicable to the selected status.
