Coronavirus: I-9 Resources

Completing an I-9 Form

As of September 1, 2021, departments are no longer permitted to complete I-9 forms using the virtual process. MSU no longer qualifies for this exception as we are now open to the public. All physical inspections must be completed in-person, as virtual verifications are no longer allowed. Employees previously hired using the COVID-19 exception that have since started working on-site, must have their documents physically examined. Any hired employee must meet with an I-9 verifier in person and present their documents for Section 2 completion. 

 

Physical Inspection of Employee’s I-9 Documents

All physical inspections must be completed in-person, as virtual verifications are no longer allowed. Departments must be actively completing the physical inspection of the I-9 documents in-person for all employees with virtually completed I-9 forms. 

Departments should plan to have verifiers on-site to meet with employees in-person unless the employee is out-of-state and/or more than one hour away from their department’s location. If an employee is out-of-state, a new I-9 form must be completed to satisfy the physical inspection requirement.  If an in-person meeting would require more than a one hour drive for in state employees to complete the physical inspection, please contact HR.I9Admin@hr.msu.edu.
