Know Your Rights about the Revised Form I-9

SEPTEMBER 2009

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services recently issued a revised I-9 employment eligibility verification form for employers to use for new hires as of April 3, 2009. The revised form removes some documents and adds others to the list of acceptable documents for the employment eligibility verification process. The most significant change is that expired documents are no longer acceptable proof of identification or employment authorization.

The most important point for advocates to remember is that workers are still afforded protections during the I-9 process.
