The USCIS recently updated the lists of valid documentation that can be used during the Form I-9 employee verification process. The USCIS deemed temporary Resident Cards and older versions of the Employment Authorization Card as unacceptable and removed all expired I-688 forms off of list A. Additions to list A include foreign passports marked with a temporary I-551 stamp and machine-readable visas with a temporary I-551 printed notation and passports from Micronesia and the Marshall Islands. Approved documents for Form I-9 employee verification are categorized into 3 lists: List A) Verifies identity and employment authorization; List B) Verifies identity only and List C) verifies employment authorization only. To be in complete compliance with all current and new E-Verify and I-9 legislation, employers should consult a professional background screening firm. Employment Background Investigations, Inc. (EBI) is a federally authorized designated E-Verify Agent versed in all federal and state I-9 legislation.
