6 of the Top I-9 Mistakes That Employers Make

by | Jul 28, 2021 | I-9 and E-Verify, Immigration

As a business immigration attorney, one of the things I get the most questions about from clients is the I-9 verification process — and it’s easy to see why! I-9 verification is complicated, confusing, and full of lots of specific rules and requirements.

That’s why I decided to write my new I-9 Verification Employment eGuide for HR professionals. This free, comprehensive book is chock-full of detailed information designed to walk you through the process and make sure you avoid (literally!) costly mistakes.

To celebrate the publication of this guide, I have decided to share helpful information from the first chapter, titled “Top 10 Questions from Employers About I-9s” in a series of blog posts.

This post is going to cover the first question: what are the top mistakes that employers make in the I-9 process?

So, what are the most common I-9 mistakes? Check out this graphic:



Now, obviously these are not the only possible mistakes. There are a lot of ways that the I-9 verification process can go sideways. However, this does provide you with an overview of issues to watch out for. You can find far more detailed information about the entire I-9 verification process by downloading my new eguide now.

Next week, we will share the answer to the second question from Chapter 1: does an employer need to reverify an expiring “green card” (permanent resident card)?
