September 18, 2017 New I-9 Form
KEEPING YOU INFORMED…
We are writing to remind you that, effective today, employers will have to utilize a new
I-9 Form and the Department of Homeland Security will no longer accept older versions of it. Links to the new form in both electronic and paper form, as well as links to the form translated in Spanish, are available at the following link: https://www.uscis.gov/i-9.
You may recall that the I-9 Form was previously amended in late 2016, with the new “smart” form being implemented in January 2017. The most recent revision makes further amendments to the “smart” features within the form and now allows use of a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, also known as Form FS-240, as an acceptable form of identification. The remaining changes are not substantive in nature.
If you have questions regarding the new I-9 Form, please contact Matthew J. Mehnert at firstname.lastname@example.org or one of our other attorneys.
THIS MEMORANDUM IS MEANT TO ASSIST IN GENERAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE CURRENT LAW. IT IS NOT TO BE REGARDED AS LEGAL ADVICE. THOSE WITH PARTICULAR QUESTIONS SHOULD SEEK THE ADVICE OF COUNSEL.
