FAQ

What is the I-9?

The I-9 form is used to verify the identity and employment authorization for newly hired employees. All employers are required to ensure a form I-9 is completed for each employee within 3 days of their first day on the job. In addition to providing identification information, employees must provide supplemental proof of their identity and work authorization via a list of acceptable documents.

What is E-Verify?

E-Verify is an internet-based program that compares information from Form I-9 to government records to provide additional confirmation of employment eligibility. The E-Verify program is voluntary, however the F-1 STEM OPT program requires that students work for employers who participate in the E-Verify program.

What is a Public Access File?

The H-1B, H-1B1, and E-3 programs require employers to make certain information concerning the positions filled by H-1B and E-3 workers available to the public. Each position (or group of similar positions reflected on a single LCA) must have a Public Access File (PAF) which contains a copy of the certified LCA, the actual wage to be paid to the employee and description of the system used to determine the wage, prevailing wage information, any union documentation, and the notice of filing of the LCA. The employer must keep the PAF available for 1 year after the individual ceases employment, or 1 year from expiration should no employees utilize the LCA.
