Form I-9 requirements are triggered by the hire of an individual for employment in the United States. A “hire” is the actual commencement of employment of an employee for wages or other remuneration. If any of the owners are “employees” of the company, then each owner must complete Form I-9. Failure to comply with all Form I-9 requirements could result in civil penalties against the employer.
