You Can Prepare for E-Verify

The University will soon begin using E-Verify, an online system, to verify employees’ authorization to work in the United States.  As part of this process, each employee hired after November 6, 1986 will need to complete a new Form I-9, which will require presentation of official identification documents.

What should I do now?

  • View the Form I-9 Lists of Acceptable Documents.  You will be required to present any List A document OR a combination of a List B AND a List C document. (If you choose to present a List B document, it must contain a photo.)
  • Locate the original document(s), as outlined above.  Copies are not acceptable.
  • Confirm that the documents are unexpired.  (If they are expired, now is the time to renew these documents.)
  • Verify that the information listed on the documents is current (For example, if you have been married, divorced, or have otherwise changed your name, and have not yet changed your name through the Social Security Administration (SSA) or the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), you should take the necessary steps to ensure that your name appears correctly on these documents.
