New Form I-9 Released For Year 2017 & Beyond

Form I-9

On November 14th, 2016, the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) released a revised Form I-9 document to be used by all employers in 2017.  The new form can be used immediately, but businesses are not required to utilize it until January 21st, 2017.  The Form I-9 confirms the identity and work eligibility for all individuals who are hired by employers in the United States.  Federal law requires that all employers recruiting, referring for a fee or hiring new employees complete the form.

Some of the changes for the new version include:

  • Section 1 now asks for “other last names user” rather than “other names used”
  • Addition of prompts ensuring the correct information is entered
  • Ability to enter multiple translators and preparers
  • Supplemental page for the preparer/translator
  • Dedicated area to include additional information rather than adding it within the margins

Form I-9 versions dated 03/08/2013 are valid for use until the new date in January 2017.

Staying compliant is tough without an Applicant Tracking System that can automate, organize and manage the process.
