Revised Form I-9 released for use by employers

Author: Mike Williams | Posted: 3/14/2013

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued a notice announcing that employers should begin using a revised version of the Form I-9. The revised I-9 became effective on March 8, but the government has provided a 60-day grace period during which employers may continue to use the old form. The 60-day grace period also provides employers who use electronic I-9 forms to ensure that the system they use is in compliance with the new I-9 form.

After May 7, 2013, employers must only use Form I-9 "(Rev. 03/08/13)N." The new form need only be used for new hires and re-verifications only. Employers must not complete a new form for all existing employees.
