California employers should be aware that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services revised its Form I-9 on August 7, 2009. It contains an updated list of acceptable documents that employees must present during the hiring process. The main addition to the revised Form I-9 is that all documents presented must now be unexpired documents.

Employers should use only the newly revised forms in 2010.
