The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has issued a revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. Until September 18, 2017, dealers may use either the new form (7/17/17N) or the one marked “11/14/16N”. After September 18, 2017, dealers must use the new form (7/17/17N). Employers must complete a Form I-9 for all newly hired employees to verify their identity and authorization to work in the United States.
The I-9 form:
• requires new hire employees to distinguish between a representation of U.S. citizenship or non-citizen nationality;
• reduces the number of acceptable identification documents; and
• prohibits the use of some expired documents to demonstrate citizenship or identity.
The new I-9 form and additional information on acceptable employment verification documents is available on the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov.
