New Form I-9 for Employers Published

Today the USCIS published the new Form I-9 for employers to use.  By Jan. 22, 2017, employers must use only the new version, dated 11/14/2016 N. Until then, an employer can continue to use the version dated 03/08/2013 N or the new version. 

The changes in the new Form I-9 include the following:

  • Section 1 asks for “other last names used” rather than “other names used”
  • The addition of prompts to ensure information is entered correctly.
  • The ability to enter multiple preparers and translators.
  • A dedicated area for including additional information rather than having to add it in the margins.
  • A supplemental page for the preparer/translator.

This new change should key employers to not only update the Form I-9 but also to update their training and immigration compliance practices.  Employers with questions about immigration compliance should contact an experienced employment immigration attorney.
