USCIS Issues Rule Adopting the Current Interim Form I-9 Rule as Final


The U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced a final rule adopting the interim rule currently governing the Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) process. This new final rule adopts the current interim rule without change and will become effective on May 16, 2011.

Employers must complete a Form I-9 for all newly hired employees to verify the employee’s identity and authorization to work in the United States. For a full review of the changes and additions to the Form I-9 process created by the interim rule, which became effective in early 2009, including information on the list of documents that are acceptable for employment verification purposes, please see Miller & Martin’s previous alert, USCIS to Issue a New Form I-9, Including Revisions to the List of Acceptable Documents.
