Form I-9 Requirements - Where Do They Come From?
Form I-9 requirements come out of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA). IRCA prohibits employers from hiring and employing workers for employment in the United States knowing that these workers are not authorized with respect to such employment. Employers also are prohibited from continuing to employ an individual knowing that he or she is unauthorized for employment. This law also prohibits employers from hiring someone, including U.S. citizens, for employment in the United States without verifying his or her identity and employment authorization on Form I-9. The main federal statues and legislation concerning the Form I-9 process may be found on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website at uscis.gov
