I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification….

what is that?

According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website ” Form I-9 is used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. All U.S. employers must ensure proper completion of Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States. This includes citizens and noncitizens. Both employees and employers (or authorized representatives of the employer) must complete the form. On the form, an employee must attest to his or her employment authorization. The employee must also present his or her employer with acceptable documents evidencing identity and employment authorization. The employer must examine the employment eligibility and identity document(s) an employee presents to determine whether the document(s) reasonably appear to be genuine and to relate to the employee and record the document information on the Form I-9. The list of acceptable documents can be found on the last page of the form. ”

Many company’s are hiring employees that work remote. The employer doesn’t have an office in the city where the employee is working so they cannot verify the I-9. When this happens the employer often tells the employee to find a local Notary Public to verify their I-9.

A Notary On The Go Palm Harbor and A Notary On The Go Tallahassee are often contacted and asked to notarize an I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form.  A notary can complete the Section 2 of the I-9 form, however, cannot stamp it with a notary seal.  The I-9 does not require a notarial act. A notary may sign on behalf of an employer, however, the notary does not do so under the capacity of a notary public, but rather as an agent of the employer. The notary can convey that they will sign as an agent for the employer in the “Title of Employer or Authorized Representative” box in section 2 of the I-9. The notary seal cannot be placed on the I-9. The notary will check the proper identification, fill in the identification on the I-9 form, and sign as the Authorized Representative; again NO notary stamp will be applied. Notaries are not required to sign I-9 forms.
