New I-9 Form

Many thanks to Harvey Randall, Esq. over at the New York Public Personnel Law blog for the head's up on the Federal government's recent announcement concerning the release of a new I-9 form to be used with respect to verifying an employee's authorization to work in the United States. Essentially, the new form deletes certain types of documents which were acceptable previously for purposes of satisfying the I-9 requirements. While use of the new form is not mandatory until notice is published in the Federal Register, it may be best to start using it now to ease the transition. The new form can be found here.
