Are You Ready for the New Form I-9? Attend Our Webinar
In March 2012, USCIS announced plans to modify the Form I-9. It provided a 60-day public comment period to which it received more than 6,200 comments during that time period. Sorting through all of those comments certainly took time, which is why in August 2012, USCIS announced it would extend the validity of the current version of the Form I-9. After a second period of public comment that expired mid-October 2012, the public is still waiting for USCIS to issue the final, new Form I-9. The focus, more importantly, should be whether or not your organization has thoroughly prepared for when the new Form I-9 goes into effect? Take our quiz to find out and learn what you can do to prepare.

3. Has the Designated Individual/Team in charge of the new Form I-9 adoption and transition evaluated the new Form I-9 for potential conflicts with your organization’s existing business processes and identified possible solutions?

- Yes. We’ve been apprised by our I-9 software developers on how they will be updating the software and we’re confident any issues will be resolved in a timely manner.
