Labor: How to conquer your fear of the new I-9 form

USCIS finally settles on the latest edition of Form I-9

After a flurry of revisions over the past several years, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) settled in March on the latest edition of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. This ubiquitous one-page form, familiar to every human resource professional and in-house counsel, has now grown to two pages, not including the six pages of instructions. 

Employers must use the latest version of the form bearing an edition date of March 8, 2013, and those who fail to do so may be subject to penalties enforced by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
