Employers Contracting With Third Parties And Share Form I9 or E-Verify Data May Be Violating The Law

I9 and The Law
Beware Of Sharing I9 Data To Third Parties

In cases where employers are contracting with third parties for services and share Form I-9 or E-Verify data with contracted Certified Public Accountants, payroll service providers, Professional Employment Organizations (PEOs), or pay card suppliers, may be violating the law of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and the employer's E-Verify Memorandum of Understanding with the Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration.

What Actions Can You Take? Limit the use of Form I9 and any information contained in or appended to the Form, including copies or electronic images of the documents used to verify an individual's identity or employment eligibility. 

Separate the I9 duties from Certified Public Accountants and PEOs contracted to process company payroll and outsource I9s to an independent Authorized Representative. 

And of course, always check with an attorney.
