I usually do not comment or note legal matters and this post may not have a lot of interest to a lot of people on the site but if you are a manager or owner you need to make sure that as of tomorrow you are in compliance with the new I-9 form.

New I-9 Form

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently revised the Form I-9 used to verify employment eligibility. All employers are required to use the new I-9 beginning February 2, 2009.

The revised I-9 form will include three important changes:

-Requires that all documents presented for verification be current (unexpired).

-Eliminates Form I-688, I-688A and I-688B from List A (documents that establish both identity and employment authorization) because these documents are no longer issued and have now expired.

-Expands List A by adding two documents: 1) a Temporary I-551 printed notation on a machine-readable immigrant visa reflects the fact that the State Department has used machine-readable immigrant visas for several years, and 2) a Passport from the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) and the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) with a valid Form I-94 or I-94A reflects an agreement under the Compact of Free Association between the US and FSM or RMI.

Beginning February 2, 2009, employers may only accept unexpired documents and may only accept those listed on the revised Form I-9. In addition, when an employee's work authorization requires re-verification, employers should use the revised I-9 form with its new list of acceptable documents. Failure to do so exposes the employer to civil money penalties. The final revised form and the updated Employer Handbook will be available on the USCIS website, www.uscis.gov, on February 2, 2009.

Indeed, they have indicated that the new form is not only delayed but is also not to be used any one who does use it is subject to monitary fines. And the beat goes on....

Looking at their website, it seems that this implementation has been delayed until at least April 3, 2009.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?

TED: David Sengeh: The sore problem of prosthetic limbs - David Sengeh (2014)

What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.
