The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the federal agency that enforces the employment verification requirements, has mandated that all employers begin using a new I-9 form . The I-9 is a form used by an employer to confirm that every new employee is either a U.S. citizen or authorized to be employed in the U.S. The I-9 should be completed within three days of the commencement of employment.
You may find a copy of the new Form I-9 here, as well as a copy of the revised USCIS Handbook for Employers, Form M-274, which explains the I-9 process. To ensure that you the latest version, make sure that the lower right hand corner of the form reads “Form I-9 (Rev. 06/05/07) N”.
