There’s a good chance as an employer, you might be aware of this. But then, again, you might not.
It appears as though a new I-9 Form will be implemented for U.S. employers in the coming months.
On November 24 of last year, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) posted the proposed changes for public review. You can view that posting and the proposed changes by clicking here.
The public review and feedback period for the proposal was 60 days. After that period was over, the USCIS accumulated all the data. Then on August 25 of this year, the organization issued its approval of the final version of the new I-9 Form.
Below is additional information regarding this important change for employers:
- The USCIS must post the final form with all changes to the I-9 Form by Tuesday, November 22.
- Employers should continue using the current version of the I-9 Form (with a revision date of 03/08/2013) until the USCIS provides further notification regarding the new form’s availability.
- The current I-9 form will be acceptable for use until Saturday, January 21, 2017.
- After January 21, 2017, all prior versions of the form, including the current version, will be invalid.
