Step 4:
Complete your I-9 Process

To comply with federal law, you must complete a two-step "I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification" form. You should complete both steps prior to your start date. Federal law requires that you complete Section 1 no later than the first day of employment and Section 2 within three business days of the first day of employment.  

You will receive an email from AlightHRCompliance@alight.com prior to your start date, the email will contain a link and directions on completing both sections.

  • Section 1 - Complete online before your first day of employment at Alight (this step should take less than five minutes to complete). 
  • Section 2 - You must schedule an appointment at a Performance Assessment Network center to verify your identity. We recommend you schedule your appointment as soon as possible. Appointments typically require at least a 24-hour notice and should be scheduled for a date prior to your start date.  If you are unable to secure an appointment prior to your start date, please email AlightHRCompliance@alight.com for an alternative solution.

If you have questions about this process or if you do not receive the Alight I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form prior to your start date, please email AlightHRCompliance@alight.com.
