it also required that I sign the form, which did not take place back in 2007.

if you just want to argue about it, that's fine, but we all know what trying to win an e-argument is worth...
Just because your employer didn't correctly follow the law and slipped some things through the cracks doesn't mean you weren't required to do it.

They are supposed to "see" the card, more recently companies will keep a copy of the cards/documents used to verify your employment on file (I am not 100% sure if it is required or if they are doing so to protect themselves in the event of an audit)

You can argue all you want, but it is a federal requirement and has been for quite some time, the rules are now stricter than they were before in how the documentation/filing of an i9 are handled.

I'm aware of the list, it's printed out sitting here tacked to a bulletin board right in front of me.
