When rehiring an employee who has been terminated from K-State for 30 days or more, please be sure to include the Form I-9 with your transaction.

If an I-9 has been completed within the last 3 years, you may complete Section 3, Reverification and Rehires.
We are unable to process transactions without the appropriate Form I-9. Please refer to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for more information.
