Form I-9 is used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. All U.S. employers must ensure proper completion of Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States. This includes citizens and noncitizens. Both employees and employers (or authorized representatives of the employer) must complete the form. On the form, an employee must attest to his or her employment authorization. The employee must also present his or her employer with acceptable documents evidencing identity and employment authorization. The employer must examine the employment eligibility and identity document(s) an employee presents to determine whether the document(s) reasonably appear to be genuine and to relate to the employee and record the document information on the Form I-9. The list of acceptable documents can be found on the last page of the form. Employers must retain Form I-9 for a designated period and make it available for inspection by authorized government officers.
The I-9 applies to all contractors who work on NSA PC who:
a) Work on NSA PC longer than three consecutive days;
b) Do not have a valid Visitor Authorization Letter on file; or
c) Do not possess a current Security clearance.
Once the I-9 Form is completed, the employee employee MUST bring the I-9 along with the employer-verified identification documents to the Visitors Reception Center. If all paper work is order, the appropriate badge for NSA PC will be issued.
