Changes to I-9 coming January 21, 2017
On Nov. 14, The US Citizenship and Immigration Services announced a revised I-9 form. Employers will need to ensure New Hires complete the new form as of January 21, 2017 (https://www.uscis.gov/i-9-central/whats-new), as all previous versions of the I-9 form will be invalid after that date. The new form brings with it several changes intended to facilitate review of the I-9 form by auditors.
Best Practice Recommendations:
In order to ensure you are ready to adopt the new changes and not experience any business disruption, TBE customers have the following options:
1) TBE will have an updated I-9 form available in the application as part of the 17A1 release. This is based on the “paper” version of the form and includes fill-able fields and basic data validations (SSN format, date format, one level of required fields) and will not include any prepopulated data. This is not the “smart” form that generates a QR code, but this can be attached to an Employee PDF Form Onboarding Activity and eSigned as part of an Onboarding packet.
