How do I Schedule my Federal Form I-9 Appointment and Navigate the Fieldprint Site?

Overview Summary

The federal Form I-9 is used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States.  All U.S. employers are required by federal law to ensure proper completion of the Form I-9 for all employees.

To help with this part of the process, NYP has partnered with a third-party vendor, Fieldprint.  To schedule your in-person appointment, which must be scheduled prior to your start date, follow the steps below.  

All offers of employment are contingent upon successfully completing NYP’s pre-employment onboarding process, which includes completion of Form I-9.  A delay in completing this step in the onboarding process may result in a delay with your start date.
