In the event you haven’t heard, the new I-9 forms have been created and we are required to begin using them by May 7th, 2013. In my opinion, they are easier to use. Only a few minor tweeks have been made, the biggest difference being the size of the spaces we write in. The new ones also collect the email, phone number, and any other names the employee has used in the past. Employers are permitted to print the forms double sided and are not required to keep the list of acceptable documents filed with the I-9 (but must still make it available to the employee when completing the form.)
You can find the new form with instructions at the link below. If you have additional questions, please feel free to give us a call at 717-855-5589.
