Form I-9 and E-Verify®

Schedule an Appointment

Campus employees, please schedule an I-9 appointment.

The Office of Human Resources (OHR) coordinates employment eligibility verification for university employees.

Federal law requires employers to verify the employment eligibility and identity of all employees hired to work in the United States. To meet these requirements, Ohio State uses two tools to confirm employment eligibility of newly hired faculty and staff: Form I-9, the I-9 Database and E-Verify®.

  • Employers are required to complete the Form I-9 and Employment Eligibility Verification for each new employee (both citizen and noncitizen). At Ohio State, the Form I-9 is completed in Workday.
  • E-Verify® is an Internet-based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, that allows employers to verify the employment eligibility of employees.
