New Changes to Form I-9: How to Complete, Retain, and Re-Verify After the September 2017 Deadline - On-Demand

Webinar is now available on-demand.

ALERT: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has released yet another new revision to the Form I-9 for employment eligibility verification. You must begin using this revised Form I-9 no later than September 18, 2017.

Though the most recent changes are generally minor, since employers must complete and retain a Form I-9 for every employee hired, it’s important to understand how to transition to yet another revised Form I-9.

And, a newly decided case by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals involving a Scottsdale, Arizona-based sheet metal fabricator underscores why HR needs to be properly trained to keep up with I-9 compliance. The employer argued that it had made a good-faith effort to comply with the Immigration and Nationality Act’s (INA) employment requirements by hiring an HR director to handle the hiring and verification of new workers to meet the business’s growing demands. Unfortunately, the HR director neglected his duty to keep the company in compliance. The employer tried to shield itself from taking the fall; however, the court was unconvinced. The court ruled that the HR director acted as the company’s agent and, when he failed to properly perform his responsibility, the company was liable. As a result, the company faces over $300,000 in fines.

Learn more with this on-demand webinar, where immigration attorney Jacob Muklewicz of Kirton McConkie will explain what’s changing, what’s staying the same, and practical tips for meeting your compliance requirements when it comes to completing, retaining, and re-verifying your I-9s.
