According to the USCIS website: Form I-9 is used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. All U.S. employers must ensure proper completion of Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States. The latest version of the Form I-9 is available at

As reported earlier by ESR News, the USCIS – the government agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States – published a notice in the Federal Register to inform the public of proposed changes to Form I-9. Many of the proposed changes to the Form I-9 are intended to help reduce technical errors and help customers complete the form on their computer.
