The purpose of Form I-9 is for your employer to confirm that you are authorized to work in the United States. For that reason, the second page of the form (where your identification documents are described) must be completed in a face-to-face meeting with you by someone representing your employer. Fortunately, form rules give your employer a lot of flexibility when completing Form I-9 for remote hires. DIY Form I-9 shows you how to take advantage of that flexibility to complete the form quickly, conveniently and correctly.
Valid question! A simple little web site offering a simple solution… we’d be curious, also! Verify I-9 LLC is an Employer Agent of the E-Verify program, serving over 4,000 client employers since 2007. We verify thousands of I-9s a year for our clients. We also complete hundreds of I-9s for our clients’ remote hires a year through a network of over 5,000 independent service providers. We review each one to ensure that it is correct and legal. We know Form I-9!
Form I-9 rules make your employer completely responsible for the accuracy of the form. By sending new hires “into the wild” to complete the form on their own, your employer risks fines in the event of a government audit. By following our detailed instructions, however, you will return to your employer a completely correct and legal Form I-9.
If you want to be sure that you complete the form correctly, check out the “Phone Assist” add-on.
A Verifyi9 Form I-9 specialist can verify that you completed the form correctly or, even better, walk you through the form, telling you exactly what to write in each field. This will happen during a phone call that you will schedule at your own convenience. Select the “Phone Assist” option at checkout.
A Notary Public is not required to complete Form I-9 and it is a violation of most state laws for a Notary to notarize the form. As you may have discovered, most Notaries do not provide this service; are not knowledgeable of Form I-9 rules; and may complete the form incorrectly. And many Notaries charge $50 or more.
When you follow our instructions, you do not have to meet with a Notary Public… in fact, you may not have to leave your home at all!
Some employers may mistakenly insist that you meet with a Notary Public, even if the Notary doesn’t know how to complete the form correctly. DIY Form I-9 includes step-by-step instructions for the Notary, so that you and she can complete the form correctly and legally. The Notary will appreciate that you provided detailed instructions to make her job easy!
