New Form I9 for Employment Eligibility Verification

New Form I9.

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires you used the revised version of Form I9 for Employment Eligibility Verification (EEV) no later than September 18, 2017.  The changes in the new Form I9 can be found in the newly revised Handbook for Employers: Guidance for Completing Form I9 (M-274) found on our website in the HR Tools & Forms section.

Changes you will find in the new Form I9 instructions:
  • The name of the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC) has been changed. Its new name is Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER).
  • The instructions on Section 2 have been slightly changed to read: “Employers or their authorized representative must complete and sign Section 2 within 3 business days of the employee’s first day of employment.”
Changes you will find to the List of Acceptable Documents:
  • The Consular Report of Birth Abroad (Form FS-240) was added as a List C document and all the certifications of report of birth issued by the Department of State (Form FS-545, Form DS-1350, and Form FS-240) have been combined.
  • The List C documents have been renumbered, except for the Social Security card, which remains #1 on the list.
