Alert: New Form I-9; Implement by May 7, 2013
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) has released the new Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 (Rev. 03/08/13), which can be found at the article link below. Employers have until May 7, 2013 before they are required to use the new Form I-9. However, we recommend that employers begin training hiring managers to use the new form as soon as possible.
Until now, employers were advised that it was still permissible to use the old versions of the Form I-9 (which expired in June 2009 or August 2012). This will no longer be acceptable as of May 7, 2013, when employers will need to use the new Form I-9 to be in compliance.
