I started working for a company in 2007 and all the employees just got a I-9 form to fill out for the first time. Isn't that form suppose to be filled out at the time of hire? There are some people that have been there for 10 years. I heard that companies can be fined not having a I-9 form in personnel files. What happens if they change the date the I put down and took it back to my hire date, can they get in trouble for doing so?
The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) required employers to verify that all newly-hired employees present "facially valid" documentation verifying the employee's identity and his or her legal authorization to accept employment in the United States. The I-9 form or more properly the Employment Eligibility Verification Form is provided by the federal government for that purpose. Every employee hired after November 6, 1986 must complete an I-9 form at the time of hire.
An employer who hires an unauthorized worker or fails to get an I-9 at the correct time can be fined between $250 and $5,500 per worker.[
