SummaryUSCIS released a revised version of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification and Form I-9 instructions, on July 17.
Today, July 17, 2017, USCIS released a revised version of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification and Form I-9 instructions. Employers will be able to use this revised version or continue using Form I-9 with a revision date of 11/14/16 N through Sept. 17, 2017. On Sept. 18, employers must use the revised form with a revision date of 07/17/17.
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 prior to the September 18th deadline. 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 assigned as part of an Onboarding packet.
