I-9 Employer Obligation

On occasion an employee with a completed I-9 may notify their employer that they used a false identity on a previously completed I-9, but indicates they are currently authorized to work.  In such an instance, the employer should complete a new I-9, write the original hire date in Section 2, attach the former I-9 and provide an explanatory memo.  The employer is under no obligation to terminate the employee.
