New Immigration Form I-9 Must be Used Beginning May 7, 2013
On March 8, 2013, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services published a notice announcing a revised Form I-9. In the information published, it was incorrectly stated that the effective date of the new form was after May 7, 2013. The USCIS has just announced that was in error, and clarified that employers may no longer use prior versions of Form I-9 beginning on May 7, 2013. The new Form I-9 can be found at www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-9.pdf. Additionally, a new version of the M-274 Handbook for Employers with guidance on the completion of new Form I-9 has been issued and is available electronically at www.uscis.gov/files/form/m-274.pdf. The Handbook contains materials and guidance with respect to the new Form I-9.
