All U.S. employers are responsible for completion and retention of Form I-9 for each individual hired for employment in the United States, including citizens and noncitizens. The employer must verify the employment eligibility and identity documents presented by the employee and record the document information on the Federal Form I-9.
In compliance with North Carolina law, all State of North Carolina agencies and universities, including Fayetteville State University, are required to participate in the E-Verify program, which became effective Jan. 1, 2007. The University verifies each new employee's employment eligibility using the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's E-Verify program immediately upon start of work. An individual's employment will be terminated if he/she fails to comply with the employment verification requirements, or if it is determined that he/she is not authorized to work in the United States, or if a non-immigrant alien's temporary work authorization expires.
