New I-9 Form Is Now Available



The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has released a new I-9 employment verification form that goes into effect immediately. Employers can use the previous form dated in 2009 until 5/7/2013, however we recommend that all employers begin to use the form immediately.

All employers must have a valid I-9 form on file for all employees on their payroll, and the form must be kept on file for 3 years after the date of hire or for one year after employment is terminated, whichever is longer.

The new form can be downloaded at: www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-9.pdf
