I-9 Preboarding: How to Complete Form I-9 Before Employee's First Day

I-9 Preboarding

Day 1 for your new employees probably includes time spent – for employee and HR – on the often perplexing I-9 Form.

But what if you could have the I-9 and E-Verify process wrapped up before the employee's first day of work – maybe even making it part of your "preboarding" process. You may not think it's possible … but it is. And finishing I-9 paperwork early allows you to speed up your onboarding process and lets employees jump right into productive work on Day 1.

On Friday, May 17, join noted immigration attorney John Fay as he explains how employers can adapt this concept of I-9 and E-Verify preboarding to ease onboarding pressures and create dramatic new HR efficiencies.

In a typical onboarding scenario, a new hire completes Section I of the I-9 Form on or before the start date. Then you (the employer) complete Section 2 within three days of the start date. After all, that's how it has to be done, right? Wrong.
