Earlier this month, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published a revised version of the I-9 form used for employment eligibility verification.
The new version of the form dated 11/14/2016 must be used by employers no later than January 22, 2017. Until then, employers are able to use to use the version dated 03/08/2013 or the new version. A Plus Benefits is working to revise our new hire packets both online and in print to comply with this change by the end of the year.
Here is a copy of the new form if you are interested in seeing the changes.
Please note that this new version only needs to be used for newly hired employees. You do not need to have current employees complete a new I-9 form.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our HR team.
