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.
