TALX, provider of Equifax Workforce Solutions and a leader in human resource, payroll and tax-related services, announced today details of its Remote I-9 Management services. Designed to solve the challenges organizations face when hiring employees in locations where they don’t have a physical presence, the new service enables employees to fill out the Form I-9 remotely and electronically, helping companies meet compliance with all I-9 regulations.
When organizations hire employees who are not local to their offices, they often risk non-compliance as new hires complete the Form I-9 without guidance. Typically, in these cases, new hires work with a public notary to complete the required form. However, many notaries will not sign the form or sometimes do so incorrectly, making it difficult for employers to ensure their new employees complete the form properly and that they’re meeting compliance regulations.
To streamline the process and help organizations onboard remote employees with confidence, TALX now offers Remote I-9 Management services. Leveraging a network of Form I-9 specialists stationed across 600 locations throughout the U.S., remote employees can complete Section 1 of their Form I-9 electronically and then visit the nearest center to have Section 2 completed. The employer agent reviews the employee’s required documentation and completes and electronically signs Section 2 of the form. The completed electronic Form I-9 is then securely stored and accessible with the employer’s other electronic Forms I-9 and, if necessary, automatically submitted to E-Verify.
