Q & A – If my company uses E-Verify, do we still need to complete I-9 forms?

Q: If my company uses E-Verify, do we still need to complete I-9 forms?

A: Yes. Participation in E-Verify does not exempt the employer from the responsibility to complete, retain, and make available for inspection I-9 forms that relate to its employees.  In fact, only after an employer has a properly completed I-9 form may it begin the E-Verify process.
