Immigration Reform Control Act
Amended date: 10/02/2018
The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 requires all employers to maintain records documenting the identity and eligibility to work of all regular and temporary employees hired after November 6, 1986.
As a condition of employment, all new employees must complete an Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9). Section 1 must be completed by the employee in Employee Self Service on or before the employee’s first day of work. Section 2 must be completed by an authorized I-9 representative of the University within 3 business days of the employee’s first day of work. Authorized I-9 representatives can be found at the following Tufts Support Services locations: Boston (75 Kneeland Street, 6th Floor, Room 668), Medford (169 Holland Street, 3rd Floor), Grafton (7 Jumbo’s Path).
Former employees who are rehired must also complete a Form I-9 if they have not completed the form within the past three (3) years or their previous form is no longer retained or valid. All employees must also present evidence of identity and employment eligibility by providing one or more documents as outlined on the I-9 form. It is your obligation as an employee to update your information and visa status as needed.
Under current law, it is unlawful to employ individuals who fail to provide appropriate I-9 verification or whose employment eligibility is revoked or expired.
