The long awaited new I-9 form has been released!
The approved I-9 revisions include both “smart” features and content-based changes. The smart features will allow users to access and fill out a smart Form I-9 on USCIS’s website. The content-based revisions to the Form I-9 add new fields and update the language found in other fields. In addition to these changes, the new smart form automatically generates a “QR Code” that will be used by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement auditors.
Employers will be required to use the new form after January 21, 2017. The new version of the form is identified as the “smart I-9”.”
