2017 Employment Eligibility I-9 Form


On July 17, 2017, The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued a new Employment Eligibility Form commonly know as the I-9 form.  The primary changes to the new form are revisions to the Instructions and List of Acceptable Documents.   These changes will also be included in a revised Handbook for Employers: Guidance for Completing Form I9.

While employers may continue to use the I-9 form with a revision date of 11//14/16N, as of September 18, 2017 all employers must use the new 7/17/17 revised form.  As such we strongly encourage switching to this new form as soon as practicable.   Below is a link to the USCIS website to obtain the forms in English and Spanish (please note that the Spanish version may ONLY be used by employers in Puerto Rico).

Understanding how to complete an I-9 form accurately, what documents you can and cannot ask for, when to recertify an employee and other related I-9  issues can be challenging.  When is the last time you audited your I-9’s to make sure your company is in compliance?
