Background:

On July 17, 2017, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released revised versions of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, and its associated instructions and employer handbook.

Most of the changes to the form, instructions, and handbook were minor and were meant to simply and clarify existing requirements. However, one substantive change was made to the list of acceptable documents in Section 2, Employer or Authorized Representative, Review and Verification.

Starting with the new Form I-9, employers may use an employee’s Form FS-240, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, as an acceptable List C document.

Impact on  Employers:

Employers may continue using the current version (rev. date 11/14/16 N.) through September 17, 2017. The new form (rev. date 07/17/17 N.) must be used starting September 18, 2017. Existing storage and retention rules for previously completed forms remain in place.  Although these changes are minor, failure to switch to the new form by September 18, 2017 can result in fines ranging from $110 - $1,100 per offense.
