Department of Homeland Security Issues New I-9 Form – Now in Effect

The new, revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, is now available.  Employers should begin using this new form immediately, including when reverifying documents for employees (e.g., updating due to name change, confirming new I-94 or EAD expiration date, etc.).  However, the new I-9 does not need to be completed for existing employees who already have a completed Form I-9 on file.

There is a 60-day grace period – thus, employers may continue to use the old I-9 forms for the next 60 days, or until May 7, 2013.  Failure to use the correct Form I-9 after May 7, 2013 may result in fines and penalties.

If you use an electronic I-9 system, confirm with your vendor to ensure they are incorporating the new Form I-9 into their system.
