USCIS Delays Implementation of Revised Form I-9 for Employment Eligibility Verification


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has delayed the effective date of the new Form I-9 for 60 days until April 3, 2009. In December 2008, USCIS published an interim final rule intended to streamline the employment eligibility verification process in which an employer completes USCIS Form I-9 for each newly hired employee, or in some cases, for re-verifying the employment authorization of existing employees. The interim final rule and revised USCIS Form I-9 narrowed the list of acceptable identity documents and prohibited any expired documents from being used for identification.
