Time to Change I-9 Forms (Again!)

As if employers didn’t have enough to keep up with, it is time to throw out your old blank I-9 employee eligibility forms (for immigration compliance) and adopt the new form as of Friday, April 3, 2009.

Don’t blame this one on the Obama administration. The regulation for the new form was written during the waning days of President Bush’s term. President Obama delayed its enactment for 60 days, as he did with all of Bush’s pending regulations, but unless something changes this week, you must make the switch to the new form for anyone whom you hire on Friday or thereafter.
