United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced starting January 22, 2017, all employers in the United States will be required to use the new version of Form I-9 exclusively to conduct employment eligibility verification.
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.
The form can be downloaded and further instructions are available at www.uscis.gov/i-9
