Yes, employees who have not been working in the United States and never completed Form I-9 for your company are considered new hires when transferred to work in the United States. Employers must:

  • Complete Form I-9 for transferred employees
  • Write the date the employee begins working in the United States in the certification block in Section 2.

 The time the employee worked abroad is not subject to Form I-9 rules.
