On March 8, 2013, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) released a new version of the Form I-9 (find it here). According to the USCIS Web site, the “Handbook for Employers Guidance for Completing the Form I-9 (M-274)” is in the process of being updated to correspond to the new form and will be released next week.
Employers should use the new Form I-9 as soon as possible but have until May 7, 2013 before they will be penalized for not using it. Eemployers do not need to complete the new Form I-9 for current employees for whom there is already a properly completed Form I-9 on file unless reverification applies.
