New I-9 Forms Take Effect May 8
On March 8, 2013, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published a revised Form I-9 for use in verifying employment eligibility.
All employers must complete a Form I-9 for each newly hired employee. Effective May 8, 2013, employers must use only the new form, a copy of which is attached here. Employers who fail to use the new form after May 7th for new hires may be fined up to $1,100.00 per violation. Employers may continue to use previously accepted versions of Form I-9 until May 7, 2013. According to the USCIS, employers are not required to complete a new Form I-9 for current employees if a properly completed Form I-9 is already on file.
If you have any questions about the new I-9 form, or other employment law questions, please contact Wendy Stryker at (212) 705 4838 or firstname.lastname@example.org; Gavin McElroy at (212) 826 5541 or email@example.com; or any other member of the Frankfurt Kurnit Executive Compensation and Employment Group.
