Form I-9 updated

March 15, 2013
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, on March 8 published an updated Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.
 
Employers who need to make necessary updates to their business processes to allow for use of the new Form I-9 may continue to use other previously accepted revisions (Rev.02/02/09)N and (Rev. 08/07/09)Y until May 7. Thereafter, all employers must use the revised 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.
 
By law, U.S. employers must verify the identity and employment authorization for every worker they hire after Nov. 6, 1986, regardless of the employee’s immigration status. To comply with the law, employers must complete Form I-9.
