On March 8, 2013, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published a new I-9 Form. This Form is completed in part by all newly hired employees no later than the first day of employment. The employee must choose and show the documentation establishing identity and employment authorization no later than the third day after beginning employment, with the designated officer of the employer completing the Form. Employers should make arrangements to use the new I-9 Form since earlier versions are only acceptable until May 7, 2013. Thus, after May 7, 2013, all employers must use the revised I-9 Form for each new employee hired in the United States.

The revised Form has several new features, including new fields and a new format to reduce errors. The instructions to the Form also more clearly describe the information employees and employers must provide in each section. English and Spanish versions of the new form are available online at www.uscis.gov.
