Effective January 5, 2011, USCIS released its revised Handbook for Employers which is known as publication M-274. This Handbook aids employers with Form I-9 and the employment eligibility verification process. The Handbook contains updated information about applicable regulations, including those relating to the electronic storage and retention of Forms I-9. The Handbook has new visual aids for completing Form I-9, contains examples of new USCIS documents, and provides expanded guidance regarding the employment eligibility of various persons, the porting of employees to H-1B and H-2A status, and on extensions of stay by those with temporary employment authorization. The revised M-274 can be found at http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/m-274.pdf.
