New Federal I-9 Form Required After May 7, 2013

The Department of Homeland Security published a new form for verifying employment eligability that is applicable to all U.S. business.  Vandeventer Black's Mara Mijal offers this summary of the change:
On March 8, 2013, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published a revised Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 for use. All employers are required to complete a Form I-9 for each employee hired in the United States. Improvements to the new Form I-9 include new fields, reformatting to reduce errors, and clearer instructions to both employees and employers.
As of March 8, 2013, employers should begin using the newly revised Form I-9 for all new hires and reverifications.  Employers may continue to use previously accepted revisions until May 7, 2013; however, after May 7, 2013, employers must only use the new Form I-9.  Employers should not complete a new Form I-9 for current employees if a properly completed Form I-9 is already on file.

The revised Form I-9 is available online at www.uscis.gov.
