Submitting Your I-9 Form
I-9 Documentation - Providing Remote Verification
Yale is now providing remote verification for new hire I-9 documents, in keeping with the Department of Homeland Security’s guidance on limiting physical proximity due to COVID-19. However, once normal operations resume, all employees who were onboarded using remote verification must report to 221 Whitney Avenue, Human Resources I-9 Center for in-person verification of identity and employment eligibility. Send Form I-9 documents remotely using one of three choices: by fax 203-432-5153, video—request an appointment via Employee Service Center, or webform—submit your documents using the Remote I-9 Verification for New Hires webform.
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.
For questions about this process, please contact the Employee Service Center.
