What is I-9 verification?
Form I-9 is an immigration form verifying that prospective employee can accept employment in the U.S. Every employer must prepare and keep form I-9 for every employee. Failure to do so may result in fines. Usually, HR will do this when hiring a new employee. However, when hiring to work remotely, it does not make sense for the employee to fly and do I-9 verification on site.
Immigration attorney can serve as an agent of employer and sign I-9 on employer’s behalf. There is no need to notarize the signature when doing I-9 verification.
I-9 verification problems
Employers from other states are in the habit of sending employees to a notary public for I-9 verification. California is an exception. The Secretary of State of California does not permit notaries to sign any forms other than Jurats and Acknowledgments. Therefore, an employee finds himself in a situation where notaries decline to sign I-9 forms in California. There are not so many bonded immigration consultant who can help. Immigration attorneys are hard to reach on the phone. Many attorneys have no experience with I-9 verification.
