The USCIS has released an updated Form I-9 Handbook for Employers (M-274) and posted it on its website January 22, 2017. The updated manual provides updated guidance on the new form I9, that was updated November 2016. It offers valuable information to employers on completing and retaining the Form I-9. All employers should download and retain the new M-274 Manual and refer to it if questions arise. Click here to access the updated handbook.
The Handbook answers common questions on the I9 form – so your I9 forms are always correct. For instance: How are minors (under age 18) handled? What to do about future expiration dates? When are you required to reverify the Employment Authorization for a current employee? How to make corrections to errors on the I9? And many more questions.
There is also guidance to federal contractors on the use of E-Verify, the web-based verification system.
