U.S. CitizenshipThe country in which a person is born (and has not renounced or lost citizenship) or naturalized and to which that person owes allegiance and by which he or she is entitled to be protected. and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued a reminder on its web site that the revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification (Rev. 02/02/09), went into effect Friday, April 3, for all U.S. employers. The revision date is printed on the lower right-hand corner of the form.
The interim final rule, published Dec.17, 2008 in the Federal Register, revised the list of documents acceptable for the Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) process. Employers may no longer use previous versions of the Form I-9.
USCIS also updated the Handbook for Employers – Instructions for Completing Form I-9 to reflect the requirements of the revised Form I-9. You can access the revised handbook by clicking here.
