New Employment Eligibility Verification (I-9 Form)

Published: February 24, 2009

While perusing through the Small business Watchdog blog this morning, I came across this post on a delay for the new Form I-9 rule. The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office announced that recent changes to the Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) have been delayed for a comment period until April 3rd. On and after this date, employers will need to start using the new form when verifying employees.

All employers are required to verify an employee's eligibility to work in the United States. Within three days of hire employers must complete an Employment Eligibility Verification Form, commonly referred to as an I-9 form.

Visit USCIS to download the correct Employment Eligibility Verification Form and obtain more information.
