Newly Updated Form I-9 Handbook

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has updated its guidance manual, Handbook for Employers, Guidance for Completing the Form I-9 (M-274). This useful manual provides employers with detailed instructions on completing the Form I-9. The revised version is dated 1/22/17.

The updated manual reflects revisions to the Form I-9. The USCIS recently published a revised Form I-9 (Rev. 11/14/2016 N) that must be used by all employers.

The USCIS has also published a table that outlines the significant changes made to the guidance manual. For instance, there is updated guidance regarding:

  • Expired documents
  • Reverification
  • An employer’s responsibility regarding authenticity of documents
  • Unlawful immigration practices and unfair documentary practices

Employers with Form I-9 questions can consult the updated M-274. I-9 Central is also a useful resource for employers.
