Difficulties completing an I-9 form for a US job

Greetings,


I am a US citizen living in Zurich. I have recently accepted a job teaching online for an American university. They have requested an I-9 to be completed and mailed. I have visited several notary publics, however based on Swiss rules, they are not able to complete the forms as directed by my potential employer, specifically section 2 of the document. The specific directions for the I-9 form completion follow.

"Please note the new edition of the I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form. This form must be submitted for your pay to be processed.

 Please complete Section 1.

 You will need to bring appropriate identification documents to this office to

complete Section 2. If this is not possible, you may opt to use a Notary Public.

The Notary will need to complete section 2, then sign (not stamp) the I-9. They must also complete, sign and stamp the verification letter enclosed with this packet.

 Copies of the documents used for identification must be attached to the form when returning it to our office."


Has anyone else run into this problem? Was a solution ever reached?


Thank you so much for your time, and advice on this matter.

What's the problem. Take everything to a public notary here in Switzerland and get it signed. Or does the form specify US public notaries only? In which case it's stupid.

If you must use a U.S. Notary, contact the U.S. Embassy:

http://bern.usembassy.gov/mobile//no..._services.html

The consulate in Zurich used to offer notarial services, I have used them several times when I needed a U.S. Notary, and is still listed as doing so on the embassy website.

In the back of my mind, though, I seem to remember a reduction of services at the Zurich consulate... So call for up to date date info.
