The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published a revised version of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. This new form (dated 11/14/2016) must be used by employers as of January 22, 2017. The form can be found here, and additional information is available here. The new form has instructions on a separate page and is being lauded as easier to fill-out on a computer. The USCIS press release also states that it now has:
- Prompts to ensure information is entered correctly.
- The ability to enter multiple preparers and translators.
- A dedicated area for including additional information rather than having to add it in the margins.
- A supplemental page for the preparer/translator.
