What’s the timetable for reverifying I-9s?

Q. When should we reverify employees’ work eligibility on the Form I-9 they signed when they were hired?

A. In general, employees who list an expiration date for employment eligibility in Section 1 of Form I-9 must be reverified before that expiration date.

In addition, some employees who do not list an expir­a­­tion date in Section 1 must also have their work authorization reverified if they present an employment eligibility document with an expiration date as listed by the em­­ployer’s representative in Section 2 of the I-9.  

Not all expiration dates listed by the employer in Sec­­tion 2 will trigger the need to reverify the employee’s employment eligibility. For example, there is no need to reverify List B identity documents such as drivers’ licenses, school ID cards or U.S. military ID cards when they expire.

In addition, if the employee checked the box in Section 1 indicating that he or she is a U.S. citizen or a legal permanent resident, reverification is never necessary.
