On March 8, 2013, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services issued a revised form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. Employers have a two month grace period to use the prior version of the I-9 form. On May 8, 2013, the use of the new version of the I-9 form will become mandatory. Any employer failing to use the correct version of the form can be subject to civil penalties. The new form contains more clear instructions on how to complete the form, has a revised layout and contains new data fields. The revised form I-9 can be found here.
