This article describes the current behavior for the I9 compliance form.


SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding 1.0 - All Versions


Form I-9 has only two sections, Section 1 and Section 2.

Section 1 is completed by the employee, by filling in the correct information and signing and dating the form.

A preparer and/or translator may help an employee complete Form I-9. The preparer and/or translator must read the form to the employee, assist them in completing Section 1, and have the employee sign or mark the form where appropriate. The preparer and/or translator must then complete the Preparer and/or Translator Certification block. If the employee used multiple preparers or translator, each subsequent preparer and/or translator must complete a separate Preparer/Translator Certification block on a Form I-9 Supplement and attach the Supplement to the employee’s form.

Employer is responsible for reviewing and ensuring that your employee fully and properly completes Section 1.

Section 2 is completed by the employer. You may designate or contract with someone such as a personnel officer, foreman, agent, or anyone else acting on your behalf, including a notary public, to complete Section 2. Note that anyone else who completes Form I-9 on your behalf must carry out full Form I-9 responsibilities. It is not acceptable for the designated person to physically examine the employee’s employment authorization and identity documents, and leave Section 2 for you to complete. You are liable for any violations in connection with the form or the verification process, including any violations of the employer sanctions laws committed by the person designated to act on your behalf.
