United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Issues Revised Form I-9 and Instructions
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued a revised Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification Form). The revisions to Form I-9 include:
Adding data fields, including the employee’s foreign passport information (if applicable), and telephone and e-mail addresses.
Improving the form’s instructions to more clearly indicate what is required of the employee and employer in each section.
Changing the layout of the form and increasing its size from one to two pages.
The new revised form (Rev. 03/08/2013 N – revision date listed in lower left-hand corner) can be used immediately by employers. The new form must be used by May 7, 2013. All employers are required to complete a Form I-9 for each employee hired in the United States. Failure to use the form, or use it correctly, can result in fines from the United States government. You can download the new form and instructions here.
