Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Audit / Certification Clauses
We receive a lot of calls from contractors and subcontractors for Walmart, Home Depot, Verizon, Sam’s Club, Lowes and other companies with Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification audit / certification clauses in their contracts. Essentially, goes something like this:
Contractor: We are building 50 stores for [Walmart, Home Depot, Verizon, Lowes, Sam’s Club, etc] and they require that we implement an I9 verification program that ensures all contractors, subcontractors and sub-subcontractors comply with immigration laws and make sure all Form I-9s are compliant. We need to have a 3rd party auditor certify our I-9s. They need to certify the employment eligibility and identity of our employees on each job, otherwise, they can’t work. Do you guys do this?
Form I-9 Auditing: Yes, Form I-9 Auditing can certify your I-9 Forms.
Contractor: They also require that we have an I9 Auditing Plan. Can you help with that?

Contractor: Great…we’re a little confused about all the I-9 requirements and don’t want to lose our contract.
Form I-9 Auditing: No problem. We help a lot of contractors satisfy these I-9 certification and verification clauses and we can help you, too.
Many larger businesses are now requiring similar I-9 certification clauses in their contracts because they want to ensure they are making a good faith effort to comply with immigration laws. The last thing they want is an ICE I-9 audit that puts them at risk and causes a business disruption. If you need an I-9 auditor to review and certify your I-9s, contact Form I-9 Auditing.
