Participation in the E-Verify program requires that the employee must enter the social security number into Section 1 of the Form I-9 and that all List B documents must contain a photograph. All other regulations are unchanged and can be found in The Handbook for Employers at Form I-9 Handbook.
If the employee does not have a Social Security Number at the time the Form I-9 is completed, please contact Records Administration at 934-4408 for additional instructions.
