What is the purpose of the I9 form? The I9 verifies that an employee is legally eligible to work in the United States. The intent of the I9 is to establish 1) identity and 2) eligibility to work in the United States. Employers may NOT hire employees that are not eligible to work in the United States. Employers must complete an I9 for all employees upon hire.
