On March 8, 2013, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services ("USCIS") released a new Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification Form. The form is now available on the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov or by clicking on this link Form I-9. Employers will not be penalized for using the old version of the Form I-9 until after May 7, 2013 when use of the new form becomes mandatory. That being said, employers are encouraged to begin using the new form as soon as possible.
Form I-9 is required for all new hires to verify that the worker is authorized to work in the United States.
Should you have any questions about the new form, please contact Beth Coonan at email@example.com or the BrownWinick Employment Attorney with whom you work.
