How to Correct Mistakes on the I-9

by | Feb 1, 2017 | I-9 and E-Verify, Immigration

If an employer conducts an internal audit, sometimes mistakes are uncovered. What are the next steps you should take? Here is what you need to know:

If a Form I-9 was never completed or is missing, the current version of the Form I-9 should be completed as soon as possible. 

If the original Form I-9 exists but Section 1 or Section 2 was never completed or is missing information, the employee (for Section 1) or the employer (for Section 2) should complete the section as soon as possible.

When making corrections to a Form I-9, the employer should not backdate the form and should make a signed and dated note explaining the correction.

When correcting section 2, the employer should clearly state the actual date that employment began in the certification portion of Section 2.
