On form I-9, there are 3 lists of documents:
List A - Documents that show the employee's identity and his/her ability to work for you.
List B - Documents that show the employee's identity
List C - Documents that show the employee's ability to work for you
By the 3rd day of employment, you must see either a List A document, or both a List B and a List C document.
You should show the employee all 3 lists and let them choose whether to show you a List A document, or a List B and a List C document. Never specify which documents you would like to see.
Employers should have a tickler system to insure that I-9s are updated before an employment authorization documents expires.
Employers are forced to walk a tightrope between avoid employer sanctions for hiring or continuing to employ unauthorized aliens and violated document abuse and anti-discrimination laws.
Employers should never require more or different documents from employees because of their nationality or immigration status.
