California clarifies its limitations on who may complete Form I-9s
Tags : I-9/E-Verify Compliance
California’s Secretary of State issued a response to inquiries from the law firm Littler Mendelson regarding its restrictions on the use of notary publics to complete a Form I-9.
The federal agency responsible for the Form I-9—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)—states that a notary public is an acceptable authorized representative who employers can utilize to complete Form I-9. However, California requires that a notary public also be a qualified and bonded immigration consultant in order to lawfully complete the Form I-9.
The law firm Littler Mendelson asked the California Secretary of State's Notary Public & Special Filing Sections for a clarification regarding the restriction and their response can found here.
