USCIS Announces More I-9 Webinars For Notaries Due To Popular Demand

I-9-job-interview-V2.jpgUpdated 4-11-18. Thanks to overwhelming interest from Notaries, USCIS officials have scheduled an additional I-9 webinar in April to answer questions about completing I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification forms.

While the I-9 does not require formal notarization, many Notaries are asked by employers to act as an “authorized representative” for a Form I-9. An authorized representative reviews an employee’s identity documents and then completes a section of the form certifying that the appropriate ID was presented.

However, Notaries sometimes receive contradictory or incorrect instructions from businesses on how to complete an I-9 as an authorized representative. Also, some states, such as California, have restrictions on Notaries acting as authorized representatives. 

The latest series of webinars, entitled “Notaries Completing Form I-9: The Finer Points,” will answer questions and provide Notaries with helpful information about completing I-9 forms. The webinar will be presented on the following date:

  • April 18, 1 p.m. Eastern Time

Notaries can log in to the webinar 15 minutes prior to start by clicking the link provided by the NNA, dialing (866) 928-2008 and entering the access code 205 493 0025.

David Thun is an Associate Editor at the National Notary Association.

I find it very important and such a great support from you to have these kind of information available for all of us, we as a team appreciate the constant updates and learning opportunities to keep up with the Law and protecting others and ourselves from errors etc. The constant information, training and mentoring opportunities are great tools for us to be successful. I thank you.

Sorry, just realized that the Webinar was last year. I believe there is still an interest by notaries in this webinar. I just received a call last week regarding an I-9. Will there be another Webinar or a recording of it available?
