Today we are covering the final key issue to monitor in 2017: I-9 and E-verify updates.
The latest version of the I-9 form is now effective, as of Jan. 22, 2017. This means employers must use the latest version for all new employees or face steep penalties. The form is not required for existing employees. The main changes include marking “N/A” in fields that would previously be left blank, verifying employment for individuals in person (not remotely via a webcam, for instance) and using a large blank field to leave notes instead of putting them in the margins.
