Can employers accept a receipt for a replacement document for I-9 purposes?
An application for replacement documents can allow an employee to continue working.
My new employee is unable to finish the I-9 because her wallet was stolen. She has applied to get a new driver’s license, Social Security card, and passport. She brought me a document from the Department of State showing that she applied to get a new passport. Do I have to terminate her employment and rehire her once she gets the documents, or can she work while she waits for the documents?
