New form I-9 now required

Effective Sunday, January 22, 2017, all employers must have completely converted to using the new version of the Form I-9 to verify new employee identification and U.S. employment authorization (for both citizens and non-citizens).  Employers are not required to re-verify existing employees on the new Form I-9, except when an employee’s authorization documents have expired.

It is imperative that all employers use this new Form I-9, as penalties for immigration paperwork violations related to I-9 verification are $216 per violation.  Moreover, under the new administration, HR and immigration professionals expect that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) audits may increase.
