Important Changes to Section 3
- When completing Section 3 on a new Form I-9 page, the employer must also complete the Last Name, First Name and Middle Initial fields in the Employee Info from Section 1 area at the top of Section 2, leaving the Citizenship/Immigration Status field blank.
- NOTE: the Electronic Form I-9 will auto populate the Last Name, First Name and Middle Initial fields from Section 1 and leave Citizenship/Immigration Status field blank.
- If an employee who is being re-verified or rehired has also changed his or her name since originally completing Section 1, the employer is instructed to enter only the part of the name that has changed;
- For example, if the employee changed only his or her last name, enter the new last name in the Last Name field, then enter N/A in the First Name and Middle Initial fields. If the employee has not changed his or her name, the employer should enter N/A in each field of Block A.
NOTE: the Electronic Form I-9 will auto populate N/A when no data is recorded.
