Revised Form I-9 Stakeholder Teleconference

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invited interested individuals to participate in a stakeholder teleconference on Monday, March 11, 2013, at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.

On March 8, 2013, USCIS published a Federal Register notice addressing revisions to Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9, and the form’s instructions. The revisions include:

  • Expanding the form to two pages.
  • A redesign that ensures the form is in line with current design standards.
  • Changes in font and font size, and placing the instructions in a one-column format.
  • Expanded instructions that now more clearly describe:
    • Information employees must enter in Section 1;
    • Employers’ responsibilities for Section 2;
    • Employer responsibilities, including when reverification is necessary, for Section 3.

Subject matter experts discussed and answered questions about these revisions during the stakeholder teleconference.
