The Sage HRMS HR Actions® I-9 efficiently and securely streamlines the Employment Eligibility Verification process by enabling the paperless completion of the Form I-9 during the onboarding process or when updating or reverification is required. Employees complete and electronically sign Section 1 or use a preparer and/or translator certification process. The employer, either a manager or human resources staff, completes Section 2 online. If desired, form access can be limited to only the employee and human resources.
Staying current with changes in federal and state forms and requirements is essential.

Read this post to learn more about both.
Fines have increased substantially for mistakes made while completing Form I-9. Paying close attention to your company's procedures for filling out and storing the forms has never been more important. Despite being a short form, I-9 presents many opportunities for simple errors. Read this post to learn about some of them and the new fines assessed. You will also find links to sites that provide additional information.
Paperless HR makes good business sense, but on Earth Day, it's good to remember that it makes sense for the environment, too. Paper manufacturing and use contribute to ecological stress on our planet. Finding ways to reduce dependence on paper-heavy processes can help.
Changes in Form I-9 are coming. The new "smart" form will reduce technological/user error and make the form easier to complete. The USCIS published a notice to inform the public of proposed changes and to provide a 30-day period for comments.
Sage HRMS HR Actions I-9 enables employees to complete and electronically sign Section 1 of Form I-9. Alternatively, an administrator acting as a preparer/translator may complete Section 1 with the employee. The employer, either a manager or human resources representative, completes Section 2 online. If desired, form access can be limited to only the employee and human resources.
