At long last the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) have issued an updated version of the Form I-9. As many of us are well aware, all employers are required to complete an I-9 on all newly hired employees. The form is completed by verifying the employee’s documentation. Currently there are three lists of acceptable documentation and in order to properly complete the form, the employee is required to provide a document from ether List A or documents from List B and List C. However, until the release of this update I-9, there were some documents in the three lists that are no longer acceptable. Those corrections have been made, though the general Form I-9 was changed very little in comparison with previous versions of the form. The most pertinent changes were made to the forms instruction page. The following list of changes was taken form an Ogletree Deakins Legal Alert
According to the USCIS, the new I-9 Form (dated June 5, 2007) can and should be used immediately. The previously authorized Form, date May 31, 2005, is scheduled to be accepted until December 7, 2007. Failure to use the new Form I-9 may result in fines and penalties for employers.
