U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) today published a new Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. The form is available for immediate use by employers. Employers who need to modify business processes to allow for use of the new Form I-9 may continue to older versions (Rev.02/02/09)N and (Rev. 08/07/09)Y until May 7, 2013. After that, all employers must use the new Form I-9 for each new employee hired in the United States.
The revised Form I-9 has several new features, including new fields and a new format to reduce errors. The instructions to the form also more clearly describe the information employees and employers must provide in each section. Additional information and the new form are available online at New Form I-9.
USCIS is hosting a stakeholder teleconference on the new I-9 form on Monday, March 11, 2013, at 11 AM PST to discuss and answer questions about the form revisions. To join, use the information. We recommend that you call in 20 minutes before the start time.
