You may have heard that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published final regulations—which took effect May 16, 2011—regarding employers’ Form I-9 employment verification practices. The good news: You don’t need to change any of your current practices—as long as your forms and practices are up-to-date.
These “final” USCIS rules simply adopt, without change, an interim regulation in place since April 2009. Those regulations reduced the number of acceptable documents that employees can show for work authorization purposes as part of the I-9 process, and made clear that employees can’t show expired documents as identification.
Employers can continue to use the current version of the Form I-9 (Rev. 08/07/09), or the previous version (Rev. 02/02/09). To read a Q&A on those regulations and find links to the current Form I-9 and the USCIS announcement on these final rules, go to www.theHRSpecialist.com/ice.
