In August of 2016, it was announced that U.S. employers must begin using the revised version of the I-9 Form. After Jan. 21, all previous versions of the Form I-9 will be invalid. While many employers have been awaiting the release of an updated I-9 form, many may not know of the transition date requirement for the form.
The new I-9 comes with changes that all employers will need to familiarize themselves with. It was updated with the purpose of addressing points of confusion for employers, as well as, employees. It also provides employers with a downloadable version of the form that can be filled out electronically, but must also be printed out, signed as required, stored in a safe and compliant manner, revised as necessary and e-verified.
It is important for employers to familiarize become knowledgable with the form changes and requirements.
