As of May 7, 2013, all prior versions of the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, are no longer valid. In March, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released the new version of the Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9. Employers are required to complete the Form I-9 to verify an employee's employment authorization with information and documents provided by the employee. The new and current version of the form is a two-page electronically fillable document with a revised format that should provide an employer with additional guidance in completing the form. Additionally, the revised Form I-9 now has fields for the employee's foreign passport, telephone and email addresses. The revised and current Form I-9 does not have to be completed for current employees, only for new hires and to reverify an existing employee's employment authorization. The instructions to the revised and current Form I-9 also show an updated Document Chart listing the types of documents that an employee can provide to demonstrate employment authorization. The USCIS has also issued a revised M-274, Handbook for Employers, Guidance for Completing Form I-9, which we encourage all employers to review. The revised version of the Form I-9 as well as the revised M-274, are available at the USCIS website at
