REMINDER: Revised Form I-9

DON’T FORGET: As of January 22, 2017, employers are required to use the “new version” of the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. The form is dated November 14, 2016.

If you don’t remember, changes in the new version, Section 1 asks for “other last names used” rather than “other names used,” and streamlines certification for certain foreign nationals.

Other changes include:

  • The addition of prompts to ensure information is entered correctly.
  • The ability to enter multiple preparers and translators.
  • A dedicated area for including additional information rather than having to add it in the margins.
  • A supplemental page for the preparer/translator.

The instructions have been separated from the form, in line with other USCIS forms, and include specific instructions for completing each field.

It is also claimed that the revised Form I-9 is easier to complete on a computer. Enhancements include drop-down lists and calendars for filling in dates, on-screen instructions for each field, easy access to the full instructions, and an option to clear the form and start over. When you print the completed form, a quick response (QR) code is automatically generated, which can be read by most QR readers.
