Revised Form I-9 Issued

On July 17, 2017, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services issued a new Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.  The new Form I-9 will be effective September 17, 2017, which means that employers must begin to use the form no later than September 18, 2017.  The new Form I-9 can be found here: https://www.uscis.gov/i-9.
Employers should be aware that the revised Form I-9 changes the instructions on the first page to remove “the end of” when describing the day on which Form I-9 completion is required.  Now, Form I-9s must be completed “no later than the first day of employment.”  In addition, the new Form I-9 updates List C to reflect the most current version of the certification or report of birth issued by the U.S. Department of State and updates the name of the Department of Justice’s Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (formerly the “Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices”).
If you have any questions about the revised Form I-9 or your company’s compliance with the Form I-9 requirements, please contact a member of our Labor, Employment and Employee Benefits Group.
