The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has updated the I-9 form. This form is used by all employers, including domestic employers, to verify the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment. Each individual hired for employment in the U.S. must complete the I-9 form before the first day of work. In addition to providing basic information like legal name, address, and Social Security Number, the employee must also provide their employer with documents confirming the individual's identity and employment authorization.
It is recommended that employers start using the new I-9 form as soon as possible, and it must be adopted by September 18, 2017.
The updated I-9 form is below and the list of acceptable documents that the employee may present to the employer can be found on page 3 of the I-9:
