Form I-9 Services
Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Documentation
The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 requires employers to verify the identity and United States employment eligibility of all employees by reviewing acceptable documents and completing the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. In its ongoing effort to serve the motion picture and television industry, Contract Services collects and maintains Form I-9 information for individuals listed on industry rosters.
Per federal regulations, the Forms I-9 Contract Services collects are valid for a maximum of three years.
If you are applying for placement on the Industry Experience Roster, the Television Commercial Roster, the Teachers Availability List, the Dual Credential Substitute List (Teachers), or an Availability List, and you need to complete a Form I-9, you may do so in one of two ways.
- In Person: Bring acceptable documents, button at right, to Contract Services at 2710 Winona Ave, Burbank, CA 91504. Appointments are not necessary. See Contact Us in the About section for hours of operation.
- By Mail: If you are unable to visit us in person, contact the I-9 Administrator by email at gro.f1585652571tasc@15856525719-I1585652571 or by phone at 818.565.0550 ext. 1130 to request a Contract Services Form I-9 Notary Kit.
Whether you come to the Contract Services office or complete a Contract Services Form I-9 Notary Kit, there are a few important points to remember:
- Department of Homeland Security (DHS) / USCIS provides Lists of Acceptable Documents for completing a Form I-9. Only documents on these lists may be used when completing a Form I-9. It is the individual's right and responsibility to select which document(s) from these lists will be presented to establish identity and employment authorization.
- USCIS requires you present original, unexpired documents when completing a Form I-9.
For additional information, please refer to the Form I-9 FAQ button at right.
Form I-9 Special Notice
Effective July 1, 2020, the bargaining parties have agreed to eliminate the Form I-9 as a roster placement requirement. Therefore, from that date forward, Contract Services will no longer complete or re-verify Forms I-9.
IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE
(as of 3/18/20):
In an effort to reduce the amount of paperwork passed between individuals submitting Form I-9 paperwork and Contract Services’ staff, and to reduce the burden on individuals of completing and submitting new Form I-9 documents during the national emergency, Contract Services will suspend its processing of Form I-9 documents, effective close of business March 31, 2020. Any documents submitted prior to that date will be processed. Please refer to the updated Form I-9 Q&A for more information.
