On Jan. 21, previous versions of the Form I-9 for employment verification became invalid. To comply on a prospective basis, employers must switch to the new version of the form.
– The ability to enter multiple preparers and translators.
– Dedicated areas for including additional information.
– Section 1 now requiring “other last names used” instead of “other names used.”
The new digital-friendly Form I-9 now has notifications to ensure the information is entered correctly.
These changes may signal heightened enforcement by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, so properly filing the form is more important than ever.
