Employers Must Use New Form I-9
by Gregg Kennerly | Published Tuesday, March 7, 2017
Federal law requires employers to hire only individuals who may legally work in the United States–either U.S. citizens or foreign citizens who have the necessary authorization. To comply with the law, employers must verify the identity and employment authorization of each person they hire by completing and retaining Form I-9.
New Form I-9 and Dates
As of January 22, 2017, employers must use the “11/14/2016 N” version of Form I-9 to verify the identity and work eligibility of every new employee, or for the reverification of expiring employment authorization of current employees (if applicable). This date is found on the lower left-hand corner of the form.
