Employment Forms

Form I-9

In 2017, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service revised the I-9 Form, the Employment Eligibility Verification Form. Click here for I-9 Instructions. This is the only form that is accepted for employment verification. For information about the changes, please see the USCIS Update and Q&A. For further information, you may review the Handbook for Employers.

I-9 forms must be completed by all newly hired employees, including staff, elected officers, trustees, advocates, and shop stewards, if they are on the union payroll and/or receive payment of expenses. The I-9 Form is required by the U.S. Department of Justice to verify employment eligibility, and must be completed even if employment is temporary or part time.

W-4 Forms

Employers use W-4 forms to collect the information they need to calculate payroll withholdings for their employees. Unions should ask their employees to complete W-4 forms every year.
