U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services sent this bulletin at 03/08/2013 04:32 PM EST
(The earlier version of this message had an incorrect phone number which has been deleted from this version. Please disregard the earlier version.)
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) today published a new Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. The form is available for immediate use by employers. Employers who need to make necessary updates to their business processes to allow for use of the new Form I-9 may continue to use other previously accepted revisions (Rev.02/02/09)N and (Rev. 08/07/09)Y until May 7, 2013 date. After May 7, 2013, all employers must use the revised Form I-9 for each new employee hired in the United States.
The revised Form I-9 has several new features, including new fields and a new format to reduce errors. The instructions to the form also more clearly describe the information employees and employers must provide in each section.
English and Spanish versions of the new form are available online at www.uscis.gov and I-9 Central.
For more information, please call 888-464-4218 or visit I-9 Central online.
In addition, USCIS will be hosting a stakeholder teleconference on Monday, March 11, 2013, at 2 p.m. (Eastern) to discuss and answer questions about the form revisions.
