It is a federal requirement that all employees complete an I-9 form by the third day of employment. This form must be completed in the presence of Human Resources staff at the Syracuse Campus, or designated staff at other campus locations. The student employee must bring in appropriate identification to show identity and eligibility to work in the United States. A list of acceptable identification (as set by the federal government) is available in the Office of Human Resources, or you can go online HERE. This is a federal law for all employers and the college could face serious fines for non-compliance.
