FORM I-9 AUDITS
Audits allow employers to ensure Forms I-9 have been completed correctly, and to make corrections if errors are found. Common Form I-9 mistakes:
Incomplete or missing name on top of page 2
Employer failed to sign and/or date section 2
Employee did not sign or date the attestation
Missing Form I-9 for one or more employees
Incorrect dates and or date format
Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) and the Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER) have provided the following joint guidance to help employers correct these issues:
If an employer discovers that he or she has omitted information in Section 2 of Form I-9, he or she should enter the omitted information and initial and date the addition.
The employer should attach a written explanation of what happened to Form I-9.
Do not back-date Form I-9; the employer should enter the current date and initial by the date field.
If you discover your employee has omitted information in Section 1 of Form I-9, the employer must ask the employee to enter the missing information. When correcting Section 1, the employee should: Enter the missing information, initial and date the newly entered information, attach a written explanation as to what happened.
Employers and/or their authorized representative may only correct errors made in Section 2 or Section 3 of Form I-9. When correcting Sections 2 or 3, the employer should: draw a line through the incorrect information, enter the correct information, initial and date the correction
