While you may be familiar with Form I-9s (since everyone that has hired an employee since 1986 should have them on file), you may not know that beginning on September 18, 2017, employers will be required to use a new I-9 Form. The changes were announced last month through a new U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services publication. From small grammar and punctuation changes to an increased number of identification documents accepted in certain sections, many revisions were made.
In an episode of the Verrill Voices podcast, Verrill Dana labor and employment attorney Tawny Alvarez discusses what the changes are, how to properly complete the newly updated Form I-9, and how to address the need to alter or update completed I-9s. Take a look at the new form updated July 17, 2017 while listening to the step-by-step guide to avoiding common and costly mistakes with your Form I-9s by clicking play below.
