The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requires employers to verify all new employees are eligible to work in the United States. Neglecting to do so can result in stiff penalties. To avoid legal problems and costly fines, have all new hires fill out an I-9 Form and keep it in a master file separate from your employee personnel files.
The current Form I-9 was last revised in March 2013 and has an expiration date of 3/31/16. Employers should continue to use this form until the new form is released. On August 25, 2016 the Office of Management and Budget approved a revised Form I-9. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) must publish the revised version by November 22, 2016.
