How Often Can My Employer Demand a New I-9 Form
I am an employee at a legal temp agency. I have worked for the agency for going-on two years. I obviously provided an I-9 form to the agency when I was hired. A year later I received a call that their parent company had been purchased and the new parent company wanted to update their I-9 materials so they could confirm that they were compliant. No problem, I updated my materials.
Last week they contacted me again and informed me that I need to provide them with a new I-9 form and all corresponding material immediately. I explained to them that I provided them with the information last year and the year before. They told me it was "company policy" to recertify every year.
Now, because this is a temp agency I don't work on premises, it's about a 1/2 hour+ each way from their offices. When I asked if I would receive compensation they told me that I should simply charge the hour/hour and a half in travel time to the company I am working for (this seems to me completely unethical).
Can I refuse to give them another one? What are my rights here? Why might they have made this "company policy"? I have no issues filling out necessary paperwork but I have a huge problem having ever increasing documents they don't need with my social on them. If they are this bad at record keeping I have no interest in giving them my information again?
Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
