We also assist with I-9 Forms!

A little-known provision of Form I-9 rules allows the employer to designate an “Authorized Representative” to complete Form I-9. The employer may authorize anyone (except the new hire himself) to review the I-9 form and identification documents; describe the documents on the form; and complete the Section 2 Certification.

A Notary Public is an excellent choice to be an “Authorized Representative”. Employers often direct their new remote hires to contact a Notary because they are easy to find, and because notaries are accustomed to identifying their clients, reviewing official documents and witnessing signatures.
