Revised Form I-9 For Use In Verifying Employment Eligibility


On March 8, 2013, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services  (USCIS) published a revised Form I-9 for use in verifying employment eligibility in the U.S.  All employers and employees are required to fill out I-9 forms at time of hire. The forms must be retained by an employer for 3 years after the date of hire or 1 year after the date employment ended, whichever is later.

The new form should be used immediately for all new hires, although older versions may also be used until May 7, 2013.

A copy of the new version of Form I-9 and instructions for use can be accessed here.  The new version makes only minor changes, specifically clearer instructions.  An updated handbook, entitled Handbook for Employers Guidance for Completing the Form I-9,  will be released by the USCIS later this month.
