As mandated by the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, all new employees within the United States must complete an I-9 form within the first three days after their hire date for any employment resulting in compensation. This applies to both residents and non-residents. The purpose of this law is to ensure that all new employees are authorized to work within the United States.

The I-9 form and process for WPI employees is structured into three separate sections and are described in more detail below.

Section 1:

The employee will login to Workday and complete Section 1 of the I-9 form no later than the first day of hire.

Section 2:

The employee must present original forms of ID to the Office of Talent & Inclusion no later than the third day after their hire date. For fully remote employees, this process should be done remotely via video conferencing. If the employee fails to comply with this requirement, an administrative termination will be completed.

Section 3:

After a review of the employees’ appropriate forms of ID, they will either be authorized or unauthorized for employment with WPI.
