The New I-9

After months of waiting, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office has finally announced that the revised Employment Eligibility Verification Form, Form I-9, is ready and available for immediate use.

For business owners, this means the old version should no longer be used for new hires. The link to the new form can be found here. You can also find a copy of the new I-9 in our “Documents” section (available here). For StaffScapes clients, we will be incorporating the new form into our standard employment application and will be sending copies to you in the upcoming weeks. After May 7, 2013 the old forms will no longer be accepted by the government.
