The Immigration Customs Enforcement Homeland Securities Investigation Worksite Enforcement Unit has clarified that Section 1 of the Employment Eligibility Verification, Form I-9, must always be completed by the employee. This means that Forms I-9 that pre-populate Section 1 using human resources software are not prepared correctly and therefore may be subject to fines associated with paper violations. This includes instances where the employee has provided the information that is then pre-populated or whether the preparer/translator section of the Form I-9 is also completed. This appears to be a significant shift in ICE policy and we will continue to monitor and provide updates on the situation.
