New Form I-9 Released

On March 8, 2013, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services released a new Employment Eligibility Verification Form, commonly known as a “Form I-9.” Cities should begin using the new Form I-9 immediately for all new hires.

Cities may continue to use previously-valid Forms I-9 for 60 days until May 7, 2013. After May 7, employers must only use the new Form I-9 (Rev. 03/08/13). The new I-9, and information about the form, is available here.
