The USCIS recently released a new Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9. Employers should start using the new Form I-9 with the revision date 03/08/13 immediately for all new hires. The older forms can be used for the next 60 days until May 7, 2013, when all employers must only use the new form (Rev.03/08/13)N.
Here are some of the changes to the I-9:
- Form I-9 is now two-pages
- Expanded instructions
- New fields for email address, phone number and foreign passport in Section 1.
Employers are required to complete Form I-9 for all newly hired employees to verify their identity and authorization to work in the United States.
You may obtain the new Form I-9 (Rev.03/08/13)N by visiting I-9 Central or here.
