The headline is a horrible rumor, but the new I-9 form is FINALLY here.
My dad always said, “better late then never”. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ I-9 employment eligibility verification form officially expired March 31, 2016, but no replacement was issued – until now.
Employers must use the new form beginning January 22, 2017. Until then employers may use the old or new versions of the I-9 form to verify employment eligibility.
I won’t bore you with a lot of details about the new form, but some changes include prompts to help ensure information is input correctly, drop-down menus and on-screen instructions for form fields (hover over the question mark in each field). Click here
to access and download the new form. It’s free.
As a reminder – employment eligibility verification is required within 3 days of hire.
Always comply. Be sure to verify. That ain’t no lie! I’m outta rhymes. I could cry.
Tinker –Peace. Out.
