Employers Must Use New Version of Form I-9 Beginning May 7, 2013
Employers needing additional time to switch to the new Form I-9 (released in March) have until May 7th to begin using the revised version. Federal law requires all U.S. employers to verify the identity and employment eligibility of employees hired to work in the United States by completing Form I-9.
Prior versions of the Form I-9 will no longer be accepted effective May 7th, 2013. Employers should not complete a new Form I-9 for current employees if a properly completed Form I-9 is already on file.
