What to watch for on nonimmigrant’s I-9 paperwork Heads up! Be sure you’re taking an extra-close look at workers’ Form I-9 documentation. In a recent release, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) warned employers to watch for issues with work eligibility for certain types of nonimmigrants. Nonimmigrants can be eligible to work in this country based on their current status, or they may have the ability to apply for employment authorization. Some types of nonimmigrants, however, are never eligible to work in the United States. If a nonimmigrant has a Form I-94 with admission coeds B-2, WT, GT or GMT, the person is considered a temporary visitor for pleasure and isn’t allowed to work here. New expiration date It’s especially important to keep a close eye on Form I-9, as the current form is set to expire Aug. 31, 2019, and USCIS is considering what – if any – changes to make.
