Employment Eligibility Verification Form (I-9)

I’ve heard about, and also been asked by employers if it is OK to use the Spanish version of the Employment Eligibility Verification form (form I-9) for Spanish speaking employers/employees?  

The answer is NO, unless you are an employer/employee in Puerto Rico. The Spanish version of the form I-9 may be printed for reference by Spanish-speaking employers and employees, but outside of Puerto Rico, the form I-9 must be completed using the English version.
