Rabi Sadiq, a new hire with your organization, is meeting with you to complete her onboarding paperwork, including Form I-9. As part of her verification process, she hands you an Employment Authorization Document that expires in 1 year. You should:

Accept the provided document for now, but make a note to follow up with Rabi regularly to ensure she is still legally authorized to work for you.
