Employers Must Use New Form I-9 Starting May 7, 2013

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released a new Form I-9 for verifying employment eligibility. All employers are required to complete a Form I-9 to verify the employee’s identity and eligibility to work in the United States.

After an initial grace period during which employers could use either the new or old Form I-9, use of the new form will be mandatory as of May 7, 2013. It is important that employers use the new Form I-9 because it contains a number of important changes from the previous form.

Continued use of the old form could subject employers to fines of $110 to $935 per instance depending on the non-compliance rate.
