New I-9 Becomes Mandatory May 7, 2013

This alert is a follow-up to previous NGA notices regarding the requirement for employers to begin using the newly revised Employment Eligibility Verification form (Form I-9) by May 7, 2013.  The USCIS published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the revised form on March 8, 2013.  Employers using prior versions of the Form I-9 on or after May 8, 2013, will violate the law and be subject to worksite enforcement fines and other penalties.

Additional information, including links to the form (English and Spanish), are available HERE.
