ACIP, SHRM and LawLogix Comment on Form I-9 Proposed Changes

The May 29th comment deadline came and went but it seems the government’s proposed changes to the Form I-9 are still on the minds of many of our readers.

Last week, the American Council on International Personnel (ACIP) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) released a joint letter to USCIS commenting on the government’s proposed changes to the Form I-9. (Read the summary here.)

One of the common concerns shared by many employers and indicated in the joint letter was the government’s proposal to lengthen the Form I-9. As you can imagine, the “simple” form in its current incarnation already confuses and raises the ire of many HR personnel. In fact, this particular proposed change generated a lot of scrutiny by our May 24 Webinar attendees, presented by Amy Peck, Attorney at Jackson Lewis LLP and our very own John Fay, General Counsel of LawLogix on the proposed changes to the Form I-9.

In our own comments submitted to USCIS after the webinar, we summarized many employer concerns similarly expressed in the ACIP/SHRM joint letter. Our May 24th Webinar was in such high demand we wanted to offer a follow up session to those who were unable to attend.
