This is an optional
field where the employee can input his or her e-mail address
if he/she would like to do so. If you use E-Verify, the
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) may use this e-mail
address to contact the employee and inform her of any Tentative
Nonconfirmation that results from your E-Verify query. DHS
may also provide e-mail updates to the employee relating
to the query. If you do not use E-Verify, this information
is currently not used for any purpose. However, you must
still allow the employee to input an e-mail address if he
or she would like to do so. If the employee opts not to
provide an e-mail address, he or she should indicate “N/A”
in this field.
is there an e-mail address field on the I-9? I'm looking
at the new Form I-9 that we started using in May (2013),
and it has a place for my employees to list their e-mail
addresses. Why is this field on the I-9?
To help you get in touch with the employee if corrections
to the I-9 are needed.
So that E-Verify can contact the employee in the event of
a Tentative Nonconfirmation.
So that the government can send the employee updates about
the E-Verify program.
