The newly revised Form I-9 went into full effect this past week on May 7, 2013. USCIS rolled out the new form earlier this year, but gave employers a 60-day grace period to transition. As of last Tuesday, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is no longer accepting the previous version of Form I-9. Employers must use this new form for all new hires and reverifications going forward, but they do not need to complete a new Form I-9 for existing employees with a properly completed form on file. For more information on the changes to the new Form I-9, please visit the previous blog post from my colleague Casey Nolan.
