Employers must ensure newly hired employees complete and sign Section 1 of Form I-9, no later than the first day of employment. Employers must examine evidence of identity and employment authorization within 3 business days of the employee’s first day of employment.

It is important to note the examiner of the documents and the employee must both be physically present during the examination of the employee’s documents.

If sign-ups are completed in early spring, as long as the employee has accepted an employment offer, the Form I-9 can be completed along with Section 2 Certification block. Provide name and title of the person completing Section 2. Sign and date the attestation on the date Section 2 is completed.

FEDERAL FORM W-4 The Federal Form W-4 is used to initiate the profile for a newly hired casual – Name, Address, and Tax preferences. We do not use the worksheet on the form, only the information below the dotted line will be used for input. If blocks 3, 5, & 7 are not properly filled out, taxes will default to Single/Zero. Exempt status expires on February 17, 2015. Taxes will default to Single/Zero upon the expiration date unless a current form is received. The address must be the casual’s valid mailing address, not the physical location. The Federal W-4 may be used for State Taxes. In order to update both Federal & State taxes, “STATE” must be indicated on the form.
