Primary Information

    Completing and Verifying the Employee I-9 Form
    Any person hired to perform labor or services in return for wages or other remuneration must complete the Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 Section 1 on their first day of work through E-serve. You will receive instructions on logging into E-Serve once your New Hire paperwork is entered. The I-9 process is used to verify the employee’s identity and ability to work in the United States.  Rehired employees who have completed an I-9 within 3 years of their new hire date do not need to complete a new I-9 unless otherwise required due to expiring Foreign National Documents.
    All persons that provide an employment authorization expiration date in Section 1 must have their authorization re-verified on or before the date provided to continue employment beyond that date.
    An authorized I-9 representative from Tufts Support Service must review (in person) the new hire’s original, unexpired work authorization documentation and complete the employer portion, Section 2, of the form by the 3rd business day of hire, not including the day of hire (e.g., if an employee starts on a Thursday, you must complete the employment verification by Tuesday).  We cannot accept copies nor can we accept expired documents.
    *If this is not done by the end of the 3rd business day of hire, not including the day of hire, you will not be allowed to work and you will not be paid.
