I have an upcoming employment based green card interview. I am currently on an EAD and have a full time role (which I was never asked to complete an I-9 for) and I now have a part-time role which I am about to complete the I-9 for. Would they ever ask for I-9s in a green card interview? Any risk in not being approved on the 485 because of not having signed the I-9 for my full-time position? This is not a case of misrepresentation on an I-9, I was just never asked to fill one out by my employer. Wondering if taking on the part time role where I would fill out the I-9 could increase the chance of being asked for I-9 for full-time role during the green card interview. Many thanks
All US employers are required by law to complete the form I-9 with the employee within 3 days of hire. I-9 evidence is not generally requested at green card interviews.

They will not ask for I-9 at interviews although it is required by U.S. employers to have been completed.
