U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced the release of a new downloadable Form I-9 Desktop Widget that allows employers to automatically launch the Form I-9 from their desktop. Seemed like a good idea, until I tested it.  I downloaded the widget to my desktop, but when I clicked on it I was directed to the I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification webpage, where I had to click on more time to access the Form I-9.

I would be curious to know if others experience the same thing and their thoughts about this new tool.  From a HR perspective, I could simply save the webpage in my Outlook Favorites rather than cluttering my desktop with another shortcut.  But perhaps others feel differently about the new widget.
