New I-9 Form Is Out!

Starting January 21, 2017, employers must use the new version of the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, recently published by USCIS.

These are some of the changes in the new version:

  • Employees only need to provide other last names used in Section 1. 
  • 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.

The electronic version of the form has also some added features to make it easier to complete and print out the form.

The I-9 form was created to assist employers verify new employees' eligibility to work legally in the U.S.  Failure to timely and properly complete the form can lead to substantial civil monetary fines. Knowing hiring of illegal workers may also lead to criminal charges.
