What is the I-9 Form?
The United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) has updated the Form I-9, which handles Employment Eligibility Verification. On January 31, 2020, the USCIS released the revised document. The form ensures one’s identity and authorization, permitting them to work in the United States of America. “All employers in the United States must are required to implement procedures for the use of Form I-9 that ensure its proper completion for each individual that is hired for employment in the United States—citizens and non-citizens alike.”
Although the Form I-9 went into effect and was published on January 31, 2020, United States Citizenship & Immigration Services is allowing employers to continue using the prior version of the form until April 30, 2020.
