About Employment Eligibility Verification
Form I-9 Employment Verification: Immigration Lawyer in NY
According to federal law, any United States employer who hires an individual who is known to be unauthorized to work in the country will face serious consequences. For a person to become eligible for employment in the U.S., he or she is required to obtain an employment visa or work visa. After this process is complete, an employer is still required to verify the person's eligibility to work in the United States by filling out Form I-9 on behalf of the employee. Each employee must have an I-9 on file to ensure that the employer has complied with federal statutes.
Another aspect of proving eligibility for employment often involves discrimination on behalf of the employer. For example, an employer who requires a non-U.S. citizen who is authorized to work in the United States to provide the employer with additional information during a screening process may be penalized under law. Non-U.S. immigrants who are legally capable of working in the United States are protected from unfair treatment and behavior from employers, and we strongly urge you to call our law firm right away if you have been victimized by discrimination.
