New revisions to Employment Eligibility Verification need to be used for new hire verifications by Monday, September 18, 2017. Form I-9 will help you verify your employees’ identities and employment authorizations while clarifying timelines for certain I-9 processes:
The new form is available for download at USCIS.gov. Although the current form will still work, it’s wise to start using the new form before the September 18th date.
Revisit your Form I-9 policies and procedures to ensure that Section 1 of the form is completed no later than the first day an employee begins work for pay. Contact our office for further advice and counsel. Visit the USCIS website for complete information on the revisions to the new I-9 form.
