The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has published a new employment eligibility verification form (Form I-9), now available for immediate use by employers. Previous versions of Form I-9 may be used until May 7, 2013. After this date, all employers must use the revised Form I-9 for each new employee hired in the United States.
The revised form I-9 includes new fields and a new format to reduce errors. The instructions also more clearly describe the information employees and employers must provide in each section.
English and Spanish versions are available. To order forms, call USCIS toll free at (800) 870-3673. For downloadable forms and information on immigration laws as well as USCIS programs, regulations and procedures, please visit www.uscis.gov/I-9central.
