New I-9 Form Now in Effect
 

On April 3, 2009, employers were required to begin using a new I-9 form to verify the employment eligibility of newly hired employees and employees with expiring employment authorizations, according to the Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).  The new form is available for downloading on the USCIS Web site.

Originally scheduled for implementation on February 2, 2009, USCIS delayed the requirement for employers to use the new form until at least April 3, 2009.  The delay was in response to a request from the new Administration to allow time to further review the implications of the interim rule. 

With the new form, employers are no longer permitted to accept expired documents for verification purposes and should become familiar with the new list of acceptable documents.
