Effective January 22, 2017, employers are now required to use the new I-9 form. While the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released the new form in November of last year, employers were allowed to continue using the prior version until January 21, 2017. The new form includes changes such as the addition of “smart fields” to reduce user error, as well as additional instructions for both employees and employers. Other additions include information for new hires, re-hires, and re-verification. The new I-9 form can be accessed from the USCIS website.
