On January 12, 2011, the U.S. Citizenship Immigration Services released a new version of its M-274 “Handbook for Employers,” the official reference guide for employers on how to conduct the employment eligibility process in completing the Form I-9. It contains instructions for dealing with various documents and situations, as well as useful photographs of different documents which can be used to complete Form I-9. This handbook replaces the previous handbook which took effect in April, 2009.
The new handbook is available at www.uscis.gov/files/form/m-274.pdf
