Beginning May 7, 2013 U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires all employers to use the revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification (Revision 03/08/13)N for all new hires and reverifications. Points to Remember:

  • All employers are required to complete and retain a Form I-9 for each employee hired to work in the United States.
  • The revision date of the new Form I-9 is printed on the lower left corner of the form.
  • Employers should not complete a new Form I-9 for existing employees if a properly completed Form I-9 is already on file.
  • A Spanish version of Form I-9 (revision 03/08/13)N is available for use in Puerto Rico only.
  • Spanish-speaking employers and employees in the 50 states, Washington, D.C., and other U.S. territories may use the Spanish version for reference, but must complete and retain the English version of the form.

When was the last time your I-9 records were checked? Government fines are steep and can add up quickly. What appears to be a simple form can lead to hefty fines if the government comes in for an audit. We can assist you with avoiding these unnecessary expenses by allowing us to provide you with more information on the I-9 process, auditing or training.
