Immigration Issues/Acceptable documents for the I-9

Question
I'm wondering what forms are acceptable under the I-9 receipt rule. Specially is the I-797 Notice of Action form acceptable?

Answer
Hi Tammy,

I am not sure if your I-797 is acceptable because I don't know what kind of I-797 receipt it is.  I-797 is used for many different applications, and only some of them are I-9 eligible (work-authorized).  Please inform me what I-797 notice you were referring to in your question.
