American Staffing Association (04/13/12) Anne Duffy
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is seeking public
comments on proposed revisions to its Form I-9, which employers
must use to verify an employee’s identity and to establish
that the employee is eligible to work in the U.S.
According to USCIS, the intent behind the changes is to include
“expanded Form I-9 instructions and a revised layout; new,
optional data fields to collect the employee’s e-mail address
and telephone number; and new data fields to collect the foreign
passport number and country of issuance.”
Because of ambiguity with respect to several proposed language
changes, ASA will submit comments to confirm that staffing firms
can continue to complete the Form I-9 at the time a candidate
consents to be included in the staffing firm’s roster of
temporary employees, irrespective of the time the individual
actually begins work.
Public comments are due May 29. To review the USCIS request for
comments regarding the proposed revisions to the Form I-9, see
