The January 22, 2017 deadline to start using the new I-9 form is fast approaching. This new form is the one dated 11/14/2016 and supercedes the old one which was dated 03/08/2013. This is the form used by employers for Employment Eligibility Verification, and is required by the U.S Department of Homeland Security.
Customers of Heartland’s HR portal can just download it there, other employers can download it from the U.S CIS website here.
Failure to start using the new form beginning Jan. 22 could expose organizations to penalties, which were recently nearly doubled.
