USCIS Seeks Comments on Proposed Revisions to Form I-9

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 the March 27 issue of the Federal Register.
