U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is expected to publish the new Form I-9 (with a revision date of “(Rev. 03/08/13)N”) on March 8, 2013, in the Federal Register. https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2013/03/08/2013-05327/introduction-of-the-revised-employment-eligibility-verification-form

Employers should begin using the new form to comply with their employment eligibility verification responsibilities.  There will be a 60-day transition period from the date of publication, after which no prior versions of Form 1-9 will be acceptable.  The new form has numerous changes from prior versions. Employers who fail to use Form I-9 (Rev. 03/08/13)N after that time may be subject to all applicable penalties as enforced by USCIS and the Department of Justice.

Employers may access the new Form I-9 (Rev. 03/08/13)N online by visiting www.uscis.gov.  To order USCIS forms, call 1-800-870-3676.  USCIS forms and information on immigration laws, regulations and procedures can be obtained by calling the National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283 or by visiting USCIS’s I-9 Central web page at www.uscis.gov/I-9Central.  Jackson Lewis’ immigration attorneys are available to answer questions relating to the completion of the new form.
