Submitting Your I-9 Form

I-9 Documentation Verification

To verify identity and employment eligibility, all new employees must complete via Workday Section 1 of Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification no later than your first day of employment, as required by federal law. By the end of your third day of work, new hires must have their I-9 verification completed by Employee Services. Please sign up for an appointment within 3 business days of your hire date. Complete your I-9 portion on or before the first day of hire in the Workday application before your scheduled appointment. All documents presented must be original, unexpired and in printed form for your in-person appointment (not accepted from view on a phone).

If you are working remotely outside of the state of Connecticut, please see instructions on completing a Paper Form I-9.

New Yale employees will find their I-9 in their Workday inbox, as well as other on-boarding tasks. For assistance with completing the form in Workday, follow the employee steps in the Onboarding for New Employees guide.

Yale is an E-Verify employer and will provide the federal government with your Form I-9 information to confirm that you are authorized to work in the U.S. Learn more about E-Verify.
