As mandated by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), AFC® will not hire any candidate for employment in the United States without first verifying that person's right to work in the U.S.
As a result:
AFC employees who make hiring decisions in the United States must:
- verify the identity and eligibility of person to work;
- complete INS Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification); and
- keep the I-9 for three (3) years from the date of the hire or one (1) year after the date of termination, whichever is longer.
- In Form I-9, the employee represents that he/she is:
- a citizen or national of the United States,
- an alien lawfully admitted for temporary or permanent residence, and
- an alien lawfully authorized by the INS or Attorney General to work in the United States.
- The employee attests that he/she has presented genuine documents to evidence his/her identity and employment eligibility.
- The AFC employee responsible for making the hiring decision must examine the documents, determine that they appear genuine and relate to the employee, and attest that, to the best of his/her knowledge, the person is authorized to work in the United States.
