You’ve just hired a great addition to your team, and you’re excited to take your new employee through onboarding and training! First things first: complete the new hire paperwork. The most important piece of paperwork for a newly-hired employee, and the most daunting for a lot of hiring managers, is the Form I-9. There are so many variables in correctly completing the I-9 that it can be overwhelming to know where to begin.
Failure to properly complete, update and store I-9 forms can result in serious violations, exposing the employer to civil penalties imposed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
