Q & A – May I specify which documents I will accept for verification?

Q:  May I specify which documents I will accept for verification?

A: No. The employee may choose which document(s) he or she wants to present from the Lists of Acceptable Documents.  You must accept any document (from List A) or combination of documents (one from List B and one from List C) listed on the Form I-9 that reasonably appear on their face to be genuine and to relate to the person presenting them. To do otherwise could be an unfair immigration-related employment practice in violation of the anti-discrimination provision in the Immigration and Naturalization Act.
