On July 17th a new I-9 form was published and it is required, as of September 17, 2017, that the I-9 document with the revision date of 7/17/17 N be used. Although most of the changes to this document are minimal, employers need to begin using the new form to remain in compliance.
A copy of the new form and additional information can be found at https://www.uscis.gov/i-9
The biggest change in this most recent I-9 document revision by USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) is in the acceptable documents allowed. There were also some changes made in the wording of the instructions as well as the list C documents were renumbered.
It is important to note that Section 1 of the I-9 document must now be completed no later than the 1st day of employment. Employers must continue to follow existing storage and retention rules for any previously completed Forms I-9.
Alliance 2929 offers electronic I-9 services. For more information contact Gavin Bray at email@example.com.
