The I-9 is used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. All U.S. employers must ensure proper completion of Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States.
Before an employee can be hired, an HR representative will initiate a two-step, online I-9 verification process through UW-Madison's contracted partner GIS. GIS will send an email invitation that prompts the employee to complete step one of the I-9 process online at home before his or her start date. Step two is completed in person when the employee provides an HR representative original documentation from this list. HR representatives are responsible for verifying these documents and completing the I-9 process within three days from the employee's start date.
