The handbook provides that the employers must examine the original document or documents the employee presents to determine if it reasonably appears to be genuine and relates to the person presenting it and then complete Section 2 of the Form I-9. The employee must be physically present during the examination of the employee's documents.

One document from List A must be examined, or one document from List B and one document from List C. The employer must record the necessary information (title, issuing authority, number) and expiration date (if any); fill in the date of hire and correct information in the certification block; and sign and date the form. Signing the form attest to physically examining the documents provided. Complete the form by entering the business name and address.

Any document(s) from the list of acceptable documents presented by the individual that reasonably appear on their face to be genuine and to relate to the person presenting them must be accepted. Return the original documents to your employee when finished.
