USCIS Revises Form I-9
The following should be of interest to all our clients with employees in the United States:
USCIS has revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. Employers may continue using Form I-9 with a revision date of 03/08/2013 N. through Jan. 21, 2017. By Jan. 22, 2017, employers must use the revised form.
These are some of the changes in the new version:
• Employees only need to provide other last names used in Section 1, rather than all names used.
• The certification in Section 1 for certain foreign nationals takes less time to complete.
• There are additional spaces to enter multiple preparers and translators.
• There is a dedicated area to enter additional information that employers have been required to notate in the margins of the form.
Furthermore, it is now easier than ever to complete Form I-9 on a computer as the revised form includes many upgrades over the old format.
