When accessing the I-9 form from http://www.uwgb.edu/hr/forms/ or directly from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services at https://www.uscis.gov/i-9, you may experience issues with the form opening properly. Below are suggested troubleshooting steps to open a fillable I-9 form.
The fillable I-9 form runs on the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader. Please be sure you have the most current version of installed on your PC and that you are using Internet Explorer. If you are unable or prefer using a different Internet browser, you will need to follow the steps below to access the I-9 form.
Go to https://www.uscis.gov/i-9. After clicking on the I-9 link to open the form, there should be a dialogue box in the lower, left-hand corner of the screen that says “I-9.pdf open with ^.” Click on the arrow and select “Always open with system viewer.”
This should fix the issue for any future attempts to open the form.
From either one of the websites noted above, after clicking on the I-9 link to open the form, there should be a dialogue box that says “You have chosen to open.” Select the option “Open with Adobe Acrobat DC.”
As of now, it appears that the form will open by making this selection but will require you to follow the same steps for future attempts to open the form.
If you’re experiencing issues not noted here, please report those findings to Jenny Charapata, Human Resources Assistant, firstname.lastname@example.org or extension 2326.
