The USCIS recently made some changes to the current Form I-9. These changes include some minor, non-substantive edits to the form in addition to clarifying Form I-9 instructions. The changes to the form take effect on May 1, 2020. If an employer misses any steps or forgets to include the proper documents, they are at risk for fines with possible and quite serious legal complications, which is why it is so important to verify every aspect of an employee’s I-9.
