I 9 updating and reverification
Below are a few of the most important changes in the newest version of the M-274 Handbook for Employers: The previous version of the Handbook instructed employers not to reverify List B identity documents.
However, identifying how broad this statement this is, the new Handbook has replaced this instruction with the following, more insightful statement: NOTE: U. citizens and noncitizen nationals never need reverification.
TPS is a temporary immigration benefit that allows foreign nationals from designated countries to reside and work in the United States for a specified period of time.
However, as TPS is generally tied to a specific natural or political crisis, it is difficult to anticipate how long TPS will be granted for each country.
Therefore, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will regularly extend a country’s TPS designation and automatically extend the employment authorization documents (EADs) for TPS employees.
As a result, USCIS has permitted the practice of presenting an expired EAD under these circumstances, provided that the EAD has been automatically extended by Homeland Security.
It is an essential resource for employers as the primary source of instruction available from the government covering the process of completion and retention of the Form I-9 - a deceivingly complicated form.
Each updated version of the Handbook has made increasing efforts to clarify earlier instructions and advise employers on the many confusing scenarios that arise when verifying the identity and employment authorization of a newly hired employee.
The I-9 must be on file within three business days of the employee’s first day of employment.The only exception is for workers with a job profile of “Unpaid Academic.” If those workers move into paid status, their Academic Partner will receive a “To Do” item in their Workday inbox to initiate the Onboarding process for the employee if necessary, which will include the prompt to complete a Form I-9.New employees that do not have previous working relationships with UW must complete all sections of Form I-9 in Workday.Do not reverify the following documents: An expired U. passport or passport card, an Alien Registration Receipt Card/Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551), or a List B document that has expired.The Handbook offers new guidance on employees in Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
