Federal law requires employers to verify the identity and employment authorization of new employees using form I-9. The form must be completed in a face-to-face meeting.
Is your new employee a remote hire? Smoky Mountain Notary serves as an "Authorized Representative" of your company to complete I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification) forms legally and without errors.
For proper I-9 form verification, section 1 should be completed by the employee before the meeting. Notary completes section 2 and personally reviews the identification documents.
Note: If the employee is not able to complete section 1, no problem, we can complete it and we then complete the preparer or translator certification.
Please remember that the identification provided by your employee must be original documents. The list of acceptable documents are included on the I-9 instructions in lists A, B, and C. The employee can choose from these lists.
I attend e-verify classes and seminars to stay on top of the most current I-9 rules.
*Having a non-employee complete the form does not relieve the employer of the responsibility to complete and retain a legal and accurate form. The employer is still liable for any errors or omissions, so it’s a good idea to authorize someone familiar with Form I-9 rules. We are Verify I-9 Certified and familiar with I-9 forms and rules.
