8.4. Who is an “Authorized Representative”?
You will need to ask a trusted neighbor or community member to act as an Authorized Representative on behalf of Measurement Incorporated to complete Section 2 of the I-9 Form.
The Authorized Representative CAN be:
- a neighbor or friend
- a school or government official
- a CPA
- a law clerk or paralegal
- a minister, guidance counselor, head of your local homeowners association, or similar public person of good repute and integrity
During this continuing pandemic in 2021, the Authorized Representative could also be an adult (18 years of age or older) member of your household.
No need to use a notary!
- Not all states permit a notary to assist with completion of I-9 Forms.
- In our experience, more businesses and notaries are declining assistance.
- Notaries cannot use their seal, but can sign and give their Commission number instead of a full address.
- This form requires a community member to simply witness that your documents are real and belong to you. A notary may only witness as a community member in this task.
