3106 - Immigration Reform and Control

Layton City, in order to comply with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, will adhere to the following policy.

All new employees must complete an I-9 Form and provide documen­tation proving their identity and eligibility for employment to the Personnel Department for inspection within three (3) working days after the employee actually begins working for Layton City.  If an employee is unable to obtain this documentation within the three day time period, the employee must provide the Personnel Department with a receipt or other proof that the documentation has been applied for.  The employee will then have a total of 21 days to provide the Personnel Department with the document.  Any employee unable to provide the Personnel Department with the necessary documents during this time frame is no longer eligible for employment and will be terminated.

An employee that is expected to work less than three days must complete the I-9 Form and provide the proper documentation to the Personnel Department on the first day the employee begins work.

All employees hired on or after June 1, 1987, must complete an I-9 Form and provide the Personnel Department with the proper documentation regardless of how long the employee is or expects to be on the job.

The following is a list of documents that have been designated for determining identity and/or employment eligibility by the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

E-Verify is an Internet-based system operated by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA). E-Verify electronically compares information entered on the Employment Eligibility Verification, Form I-9, with records contained in SSA and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) databases to help employers verify the identity and employment eligibility of newly hired employees.

Once a newly hired employee has completed the Form I-9, the City will initiate a verification query in E-Verify no later than the 3rd business day after the employee begins work for pay.

If the City mistakenly fails to initiate a verification query within this timeframe, it should bring itself into compliance to the extent possible with program requirements immediately by initiating the query.

Layton City shall not:

  • selectively verify newly hired employees. The City must follow E-Verify procedures for all new hires while the City is participating;
  • request that the employee use certain documentation for Form I-9 or E-Verify purposes;
  • use E-Verify to discriminate against any job applicant or new hires on the basis of his or her national origin, citizenship, or immigration status;
  • use the system to pre-screen applicants for employment;
  • go back to check employment eligibility for employees hired before the City signed the Memorandum of Understanding with USCIS and SSA;
  • use the system to re-verify employment authorization.

Layton City must provide employees an opportunity to contest a Tentative Nonconfirmation.  The employee must continue to work during the verification process.  The City can only take adverse action, based on E-Verify, against an employee when the program uses a Final Nonconfirmation.

Beginning July 1, 2009 Layton City will not enter into a contract for the physical performance of services within the state with a contractor unless the contractor registers and participates in the Status Verification System to verify the work eligibility of the contractor’s new employees that are employed in the state. A contractor shall register and participate in order to enter into a contract with a public employer.
