New I-9

Starting February 2, 2009 there is a new I-9 (.pdf) for new employees.

What’s new?:

  • All documents presented during the verification process must be unexpired.
  • Two new documents have been added that establish both identity and employment authorization
  • Three documents were removed from the list of acceptable documents

The Department of Homeland Security U.S. Citizens and Immigration Services has published a Questions and Answers about the New I-9 (.pdf)
