As you are aware, the Department of Homeland Security – United States
Citizenship and Immigration Services (formerly INS) announced in the
Federal Register on November 26, 2007 that employers must transition to
the revised Employment Eligibility Verification Form (I-9) not later than
December 26, 2007.
The revised I-9 is required to be completed for all new hires and
reverifications occurring after December 26, 2007. The USCIS has advised
that employers who do not use the revised I-9 for employee
verification/reverification after that date may be subject to penalties.
