You may have recently noticed on the top right corner of Form I-9 that its expiration is near! All U.S. employers must complete and retain a Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States. This includes citizens and noncitizens, and is mandated by the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or USCIS.
At this time, and until further notice, business owners are instructed to continue using the Form I-9 currently available on the forms section of http://www.uscis.gov. This form should continue to be used even after the expiration date of August 31, 2012 has passed.
USCIS will provide updated information about the new version of the Form I-9 as it becomes available, and business owners can subscribe to I-9 Central to receive Form I-9 updates. Once the form is available, it is the employer’s responsibility to file the new form with each new employee.
HR Shield will also be updating its members when this new form is made available. HR Shield makes hiring employees easier with job interview tips, employee compensation advice, and HR compliance management including I-9 employment eligibility verification.
