The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has been making several revisions to its I-9 form within the last year. In November 2016, the USCIS published a revised version of the form, which included a number of changes within the form and which also was designed to be easier to fill out on a computer. Then, in July 2017, the USCIS announced it had made additional revisions to the form, including revisions to the instructions and to the list of acceptable documents on the form. Employers are required to use the July 2017 form as of September 18, 2017. All of this has the potential to complicate employer efforts to comply with their I-9 employee verification responsibilities. Of course, employers understand that they need to ensure that their I-9 forms are in order or risk potential fines, penalties, and possibly even jail time. The new I-9 form only adds to the current complex atmosphere surrounding employment and immigration issues. To avoid potential problems, employers need to come up to speed quickly on the new I-9 form and understand what changes they may need to make to their current employee verification procedures.
Please join Richard F. Verstegen as he reviews the federal requirements that govern your employer’s I-9 practices and goes through the changes to the I-9 employee verification form and how these may affect the employee verification procedures you already have in place.
