3I-9 Verification What Is It? Why? All citizens and non-citizen employees who will be working in the United States must prove they are eligible and authorized to do so. This is done by completing the Employee Eligibility Verification. Form I-9.WHYWhen any company hires a new employee, the employer is required by Federal law to complete a Form I-9 to verify the employee’s identity and eligibility to work in the United States.
4What role do pan Testing Centers play in the I-9 Process? pan Testing Centers are used by some companies as additional I-9 processing facilities, to provide more options to newly hired employees who must complete this task before starting work.pan Proctors will act as “Processing Agents”, verifying the documents new hire employees must present for validation of their U.S. work eligibility.pan Proctors are NOT HR Specialists, but ARE expected to be familiar with the basic requirements, acceptable documents, and the process for accurately completing the Form I-9 electronically via the pan Proctor Console.
5Center Requirements“Proctor” type time blocks are needed to be entered and available in EVM. “Proctor” time blocks do not require a testing station and are used for non-testing events which only require the Proctor’s time.Each center must have a scanner at or near the proctor station to upload copies/images of the documents presented by the applicant for verification.Form I-9 contains three sections:Section 1: Employee Information and Verification (completed by the applicant prior to scheduling)Section 2: Employer Review and Verification (completed by pan Testing Center “Processing Agents”)Section 3: Updating and Re-verification (completed by the applicant’s employer)
