Employment Verification

According to the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 and the Immigration Act of 1990 as interpreted by university attorneys, all employees including graduate, research, and doctoral assistants must have their identity and employment eligibility verified by completing a Form I-9. The verification (I-9) process must be initiated on or before the first day of work, and must be completed within three (3) business days. If the employee is unable to present the required documents(s) to establish eligibility for section 2 of the I-9 form within the time specified, the employee must produce a receipt showing that he or she has applied for the document(s). In addition, the employee must present the actual document(s) within ninety (90) days of the date of hire. Assistants who are not verified within three (3) business days of the date of employment could have their employment terminated. Verification must be done in person at the Graduate School, West Quad, Room 100.
