USCIS Releases Revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification
Posted on: January 9th,2017
On Nov. 14, 2016, USCIS released a revised version of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. Employers may continue using Form I-9 with a revision date of 03/08/2013 N through January 21, 2017. However, the best action is for employers to take this time to review their new-hire paperwork to ensure that they are using the new Form I-9, dated 11/14/2016. Failure to use the new Form I-9 after January 21, 2017, may result in fines and penalties. The new form can be accessed on USCIS’s website at https://www.uscis.gov/i-9.
