REMINDER! Today is the day you must start using the new I-9

by Michael Haberman on September 19, 2017 · 0 comments

This is how you know you are using the correct form.

Back in July, I wrote There is a new I-9 form and you had better start using it! I told you that the USCIS had published a new I-9 form that was to be used starting in September. Well, was the day! As of today the form what has an expiration date of 8/31/2019 is the proper form to use for every new hire. Use of any other form from this point forward when hiring new employees can result in a fine of up to $1100 for each form improperly used.

What to do

Go here and download the new form, if you like to use paper forms, or save the link for the electronic form if that is your preferred method. Purge your files NOW of all blank forms that do not have the 8/31/2019 expiration date on them. Save yourself the heartache of getting caught in an audit years from now and paying thousands of dollars in fines.

If you have not done this MAKE IT A PRIORITY RIGHT NOW!  Avoid a stupid HR mistake that can cost you your job in the future. Don’t come crying to me if you don’t make this change and get caught. Pass this blog link to all the other HR people, office managers and business owners you know.
