The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) has issued a new Form I-9 for employers to use to verify identity and eligibility of all new hires to work in the United States.  The new Form I-9 was issued on March 8, 2013 and is available at USCIS’s website, www.uscis.gov/i-9. Effective May 7, 2013, employers must use the new Form I-9.  The requirements that employers must have a completed Form I-9 for each person on their payroll and must retain and store the form for three years after the date of hire or one year after employment is terminated, whichever is later, remain unchanged. For any questions on this matter or employment matters in general, pease contact Gerri Sperling at 412.918.1165.
