How can I get rid of the I-9 banner?

If you are being prompted to complete I-9 verification through Zenefits, but have already done this outside of the system, you can follow these steps to dismiss the notification:

  1. Go to the profile of the person for whom you're receiving the I-9 verification prompt.
  2. Click the Complete I-9 link in the banner at the top of the page.
  3. Click the Have you already completed their Form I-9? link under the Section 1 heading.
  4. Confirm that you've already completed the I-9.

The banner and I-9 verification prompt will then be removed from the worker's profile.

If you are being prompted to reverify an I-9 and the work authorization has been extended (if you filed a Form I-129 on time for example), you can extend Zenefits’ recorded work authorization expiration date by doing the following:

  1. Go to the profile of the person for whom you're receiving the I-9 reverification prompt.
  2. Click the Extend Authorization action in the Form I-9 box.
  3. If the employment authorization has been extended click the Extended radio button.
  4. Enter in the new authorization’s expiration date. 

If you want to document in a Form I-9’ s Section 2 "Additional Information" field that the work authorization has been extended:

  1. Update the Additional Info field with what should appear in Section 2’s “Additional Information” box on the corrected Form I-9 PDF.
  2. Fill out the Documentation of Modification fields in Section 2. This information will be appended to the corrected Form I-9 PDF that has these latest changes.
  3. Click Save.

Admins will be reminded to reverify 90, 60, 30, and 7 days prior to the new extension date.
