E-Verify recently reminded employers not to accept restricted Social Security cards as List C documents on the I-9 work authorization verification form. Form I-9 List C documents verify an employee’s authorization to work.
Employers should not accept a restricted Social Security card that is stamped with one of the following:
- Valid for work only with DHS authorization
- Valid for work only with INS authorization
- Not valid for employment
