Do I need to retain and store Form I-9?

Yes. Employers are required to maintain a completed Form I-9 for each worker on payroll for 3 years after the worker's hire date or one year after the worker leaves the company, whichever is longer.

Since Zenefits serves as the system of record for I-9 forms, there is no need to print the form while the company continues to use Zenefits. However, should the company choose to discontinue its use of Zenefits, copies of each  I-9 should be printed and stored.
