Today, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) publishd a revised version of Form I-9. The new version requires additional information from foreign national employees, including the email address, telephone number, and foreign passport information.
The revised form is effective today. USCIS is providing a 60-day grace period so that employers can update their internal processes. During the grace period, the current version can still be used. After the 60-day grace period, which ends on May 7, 2013, employers must use the new I-9 or be subject to penalties for not using the correct version.
Starting today, the new Form I-9 can be downloaded at: www.uscis.gov.
