Q : I'm a Federal contractor with the FAR E-Verify clause. I've decided to complete all new Forms I-9 for all of my existing employees (Option I). What date should I enter in Section 2 of the new Forms I-9 and in E-Verify?
Identify the original hire date of the employee by reviewing the previously completed Form I-9. Enter the original hire date into Section 2 of the new Form I-9 and use this date when you initiate an E-Verify query. Retain the previous Form I-9 with the new Form I-9. Note that if the employee was hired on or before November 6, 1986 and has continue in employment with you since that time, he or she was not required to complete Form I-9. These employees are not required to complete a new Form I-9 and are exempt from E-Verify.
