On November 14th, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released the new I-9 form, which must be used beginning January 22, 2017. The new form includes changes such as the addition of “smart fields” to reduce user error, as well as new and additional instructions for both employees and employers. Other additions include information for new hires, re-hires, and re-verification. While the old version of the I-9 form may be used until January 21st, employers should familiarize themselves now with the new form, and determine if any training is necessary for their teams to seamlessly adopt the new version of the form.
