Third in our series of tips to avoid common I-9 mistakes is some helpful advice about the reverification process. A lot of employers aren’t exactly sure when reverification must be completed, or which employees must be reverified.

Tip #3: Create a Reverification System.

It’s a good idea to establish a system that will remind you to reverify employees whose work authorizations are expiring—this must be done before the expiration date in order to maintain I-9 compliance.

An easy way to do this is to set up a tickler system that is organized by month. Sorting your employee records in this way can help you to stay on top of reverifications and to maintain compliance.

Remember, U.S. citizens and noncitizen nationals don’t ever need reverification. If an employee does require reverification, it must be completed no later than the date that the employee’s employment authorization (or employment authorization document) expires, whichever is sooner.
