Q. Our company is currently going through a merger. Are we required to complete a new I-9 employment eligibility form for each employee who worked for the other company, or are these employees “grandfathered” in?
A. You do not need to complete new I-9 forms, but you should audit the existing forms to make sure that they were completed properly. In the event of an I-9 audit, you will be responsible for any errors or omissions made by the prior company. Improper or incomplete I-9 forms can result in expensive fines.
Also, you should verify that any workers on temporary visas are in compliance with immigration laws and determine when their authorization to work will expire.
