On July 17, 2017, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services published a new Form I-9 to be used to verify employment eligibility for new hires. Employers must complete the new Form I-9 for any employee hired on or after September 18, 2017; continued use of the old form will subject employers to significant monetary penalties.
The revisions to the new form are limited to updates in the List of Acceptable documents; specifically, List C has been renumbered and updated to include the current versions of the certification or report of birth forms issued by the U.S. State Department.
Employers are reminded that they must ensure that all new employees complete the Form I-9 within the first three (3) days of employment. The new Form I-9 may be accessed at: https://www.uscis.gov/i-9
