guess what. I never
saw an i9 before this form was sent to me. And certainly never signed one.
therefore, it's "new" to me. apparently it's also 'new' to the folks at Fenton City Hall, as they'd only seen one once, and didn't want to touch it.
edit: just texted the HR Director at my former employer. They don't use the i9 form even today... and they do participate in e-verify and do also do background checks.
I'm not an HR person, so I don't really know, or care why or how they get around something that you deal with every day.
