This past November, the US. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published an updated version of the Form I-9, also known as the Employment Eligibility Verification form. Employers previously had a grace period where they could still utilize the older Form I-9 dated 03/08/2013, but as of January 22, 2017, all employers must transition to the new Form I-9 dated 11/14/16.
Employers must complete Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, for all newly hired employees to verify their identity and authorization to work in the US.
