USCIS revises Form I-9 employment authorization for new hires

As we are headed into a new year of business activities, please note that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services have published a revised version of form I-9 on 11/14/2016. As of January 22, 2017, all employers must use the new form when onboarding new employees. The new Form I-9  is easier to complete online, contains helpful prompts, and includes additional space to make corrections.  Form I-9 must be completed by both employer and employee upon hire to verify identity and employment authorization.  It cannot be used to screen job applicants. Please find more information and the form to download here.
Form I-9 requirements were established in November 1986 when Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA). IRCA prohibits employers from hiring people, including U.S. citizens, for employment in the United States without verifying their identity and employment authorization on Form I-9. The team at BridgehouseLaw LLP is happy to assist you with an I-9 compliance review. 

Best regards
und viele Grüße aus Charlotte
