Revised I-9 Verification Forms Now Required

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) reminded employers that they should have transitioned to using the revised Employment Eligibility Verification Form (I-9).

The revised I- 9, which includes the revision date “(Rev. 06/05/07)N” printed on the lower right corner of the form, is now the only version valid for use. Effective December 26, 2007, employers who fail to use the revised form are subject to applicable penalties.

The revised form is available at http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-9.pdf, and accompanying instructions are at http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgne

The “Handbook for Employers, Instructions for Completing the Form I-9” is available at http://www.uscis.gov/files/nativedocuments/m-274.pdf.
