Here is a template email you can send to new hires about completing an I-9 form:

Welcome to the University of Kentucky! We are excited to have you join us.

After accepting the offer for employment, your next step will be the completing of your I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form.

The form must be completed in person on or before your first day of employment. You can schedule an appointment to complete your I-9 at the UK Human Resources Employment office (located at 112 Scovell Hall) by visiting this page.

To prepare for your appointment, you must present appropriate, original and unexpired documentation that establishes your identity and employment eligibility to complete the I-9 form. If you are a non-U.S. citizen, you will also need to present your visa document (I-20 for F-1, DS-2019 for J-2 or I-797 for H-1B) in addition to the documents on the list of acceptable documents.
