If an employee will continue to work for the University and his/her work authorization documents are due to expire, an I-9 re-verification will need to be processed. The re-verification needs to be updated on or before the date the current work authorization expires to ensure the employee is still authorized to work. If the I-9 is not updated before the current work authorization expires, the employee is not eligible to continue working. The I-9 and current payroll records will be terminated.
SAS-HR will send the department and/or employee a friendly reminder, as appropriate, regarding the employees whom are due for an I-9 re-verification. They will also request updated work authorization documents at that time.
Renewed work authorization documents may include:
- Unexpired Foreign Passport
- Most Recent I-94
- Visa document (I-20, DS-2019, HIB)
- If the employee is no longer on a visa, but has since received an Employment Authorization Document (EAD card) or has become a Permanent Resident, a front and back copy of the respective card will suffice.
If the employee does not have the approved documents but does have the USCIS receipt notice (Form I-797C) showing he/she timely filed for an extension, a 90 day extension can be added to the I-9 until the approved documents are received.
