General Information

  1. The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) requires employers to verify employment eligibility of all employees hired on or after November 7, 1986 via completion of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) I-9 form. The Act provides comprehensive lists of acceptable documents for employment eligibility. An individual must present a document or documents that establish identity and employment eligibility.  However, the choice of documents from those lists is the employee’s alone. The campus may not require the employee to present additional or different documents than the ones chosen by the employee from those lists. If an employee does not have a Social Security card, enter ’SS5 SENT’ in Item 105 on a PPT and route to CSU Audits. For additional information, refer to Item 105.
