New I-9 Form Now Required
6/6/2013 | Construction Blog
Beginning May 7, 2013, all employers are required to use the newly released I-9 Form to verify employment eligibility for workers. Anyone using the form moving forward will be subject to penalties.
The revised form was released by the Department of Homeland Security in March. Rules require that it be completed and retained for all employees to verify their employment, whether they be U.S. citizens or non-citizens. An exception exists for only current employees who completed the prior version of the I-9 form.
A copy of the form and further instructions on how to complete the process can be found at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website.
