Form I-9

For the Certification of Section 2 on Form I-9, what date is used for the employee’s first day if the acceptance of a job offer is 1 month prior to the actual hire date? Does the employer wait to enter the actual hire date, but put the date of acceptance in the “today’s date”?

Many employers include both a hire date and start date in employee records. Usually, the hire date is when an employee accepts a job offer while the start date is when an employee actually begins working in his/her position.

However, for the purposes of completing the I-9, the hire date means the first day the employee works for pay. When the employee accepted the job offer has no bearing on the completion of the I-9. Employers must complete and sign Section 2 of Form I-9 within 3 business days of an employee’s hire date.
