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.

In I-9 Preboarding: How to Complete Form I-9 Before Employee's First Day, noted immigration attorney John Fay 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.

This thought-provoking session addresses:

  • Typical I-9 onboarding challenges
  • Using an authorized agent for completing Section 2
  • Defining your I-9 preboarding process
  • E-Verify considerations with preboarding
  • Using an electronic Form I-9 and E-Verify compliance solution to manage Form I-9 preboarding

What are the benefits of completing I-9s before Day 1?

  • A new level of efficiency, because every minute spent on onboarding paperwork can affect the operation
  • Convenience and flexibility, providing new hires with the freedom to choose a verifier who completes section 2 on behalf of the organization
  • Easily manage reverifications, and rely on an automated process to complete remote recertifications electronically and on time
