Legal disclaimer: Utilize the alternative procedure check box if participating in an authorized, alternative procedure of examining I9 documents.

You may do so only if the production company employer is registered to use E-Verify. An employer may choose to use an authorized representative to complete, update or make corrections to Section 2 or Supplement B on their behalf. This includes the use of an authorized representative to conduct remote document examination to satisfy the physical document examination requirement.  If GreenSlate is providing e-verify for your production the production must still witness all I9 documents as required by law. If I9 is verified utilizing the alternative procedure, the back up documents MUST be attached to the I9
