If a company hires a contractor or a temporary agency, they don’t – the company doesn’t need to fill out an I-9 for those workers, but they should be careful about whether this truly is a contractor. And they also should be careful – I have always recommended that they have agreements or a paragraph in their contract with the contractor and with the temporary agency that says those entities have conducted and complied with all I-9 obligations.
