I-9 Form 

ESU is required to verify the identity and employment eligibility and complete an I-9 form for every employee hired after November 6, 1986 according to the Immigration Reform Act. In addition, the law obliges ESU not to discriminate against individuals on the basis of national origin or citizenship, or to require more or different documents from a particular individual.

I-9 Requirements

New employees must complete section 1 on an original I-9 form on or before your first day of work.

You must present original documents to verify your identity and work authorization when you complete the I-9 form. A list of acceptable documents is on page 3 of the form (page 4 of the electronic version). You must present the document(s) within 3 business days of the date employment begins. If you are unable to present the required document(s), you must present a receipt for the application for the document(s) within 3 business days. You must then present the actual document(s) within 90 days of the date employment begins. The office will copy your documentation and attach it to your I-9 form.

If you are appointed for less than 3 days, you must complete section 1 and present acceptable documentation on your first day of work.

You will not be permitted to work if you do not comply with the I-9 requirements. Please refer to the INS website for more details: http://uscis.gov
