HR COMPLIANCE ALERT: New I-9 Form Required Starting May 7

HNI Compliance Advisor

Starting May 7, all employers will be required to use a revised Form I-9, the employmentI-9 employment eligibility form eligibility verification document completed for every new hire. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced the change to the I-9 employment eligibility form in early March.

The new form now is two pages (up from one page), not including instructions and the list of acceptable documents. [The complete document, including instructions and list of acceptable documents, is nine pages.]

The I-9 Employment Eligibility Form Makeover

Key changes to the I-9 employment eligibility form include:

  • Adding data fields for the employee's passport information (if applicable) and phone and email address
  • Updated instructions on how to complete the form

The final webinar will be held:

  • Tuesday, April 30, at 1 p.m. CDT
