Q&A: What if I don't have the required original documents for I-9 purposes?
Apply for new documents soon, and save those receipts!
I recently lost everything in a fire. I have no passport, no driver’s license, no birth certificate, and no Social Security card. I finally got a new job, but my employer says that I can't keep working until I present documents to prove that I am authorized to work. I have a copy of the list of documents that are acceptable, but I do not have any of them. Can I really be fired for this?
