New I-9 Form Must Be Used Starting May 7, 2013

In early March, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published a revised I-9 Form. The I-9 Form includes new fields, has been reformatted to reduce errors, and has clearer instructions for employers and employees. USCIS advises employers to begin using the newly revised I-9 Form for all new hires and reverifications immediately, but mandatory use of the new I-9 Form does not begin until May 7, 2013. The new form may be found here: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-9.pdf

The Department of Homeland Security Notice to employers regarding the new I-9 Form is here: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-03-08/pdf/2013-05327.pdf
