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.
all of the above may be true. but for this non-HR guy, it was "new" see the point?
it's also apparently not being followed by your local friendly city hall folks either as they all freaked out just from me asking them to even look at the form - hence why I suggested that perhaps, just perhaps that local/regional governmental agencies are exempted from that specific requirement? perhaps, just perhaps they have a different process/requirement?
FFS man, rough week? did you have to put pants on more than once?
