U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) has released a revised Form I-9, which all employers must use to verify the identity and employment eligibility of new hires. Employers should begin using the new Form I-9 immediately; however, prior versions of the form may be used until May 7, 2013.

When a person is hired to perform labor or services in the United States, the employer has an obligation to verify the employee’s identity and work authorization. Proper completion and retention of Form I-9 is a critical step of the hiring process for all employers.
