If you have hired a foreign worker for your U.S. company, be sure to complete Form I-9 Employment Verification. U.S. employers are required by law to verify that their foreign employees are authorized to work in the United States. Employers who hire or continue to employ non-authorized employees or who fail to comply with I-9 requirements may face civil and criminal penalties. Through the verification process, employers are able to ensure that their employees are authorized to work in the United States and that hiring practices do not unlawfully discriminate based on a potential employee's immigration status.
