U.S. Citizenship and immigration Services (USCIS) issued a newer version of the Form I-9 on July 17, 2017. This form use is mandatory beginning September 18, 2017. The newest version contains very subtle changes to the instructions section and to the list of acceptable documents.
These minor changes are a great reminder to employers that Section 1 must be completed “at the time of hire.” Now is a great time to review your company hiring process to ensure your procedures are compliant.
Section 1 must be completed no later than the employee’s 1st day of work. Employers may be severely fined if the form is not properly completed within the timeline set forth by USCUS.
