Form I-9 Revised and Released for Implementation
Posted in: Human Resources | | | Leave a Comment
Earlier this week, the Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released an update to the Employment Eligibility Verification form, or the I-9. Employers must use the revised version of the form starting January 22, 2017 (dated 11/14/16N).
One change asks for “other last names used” instead of “other names used” in Section 1. Changes also include:
- Prompts to ensure information is entered correctly
- Ability to enter multiple preparers and translators
- Dedicated space for additional information
- Supplemental page for preparer/translator
Also, the instructions have been separated from the form itself and includes information on each individual field.
With these changes, it also becomes easier to complete on a computer, including on-screen instructions and drop-down boxes.
For more information on the new Form I-9, please visit the USCIS website. As an employer, you may continue to use the 03/08/13N dated form until January 22, 2017.
