Legal Alert - Continue Using Expired Version of the Current Form I-9
August 22, 2012
by Manuel H. Cairo
The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 requires employers to verify the identity and employment authorization of all employees hired after November 6, 1986. To comply with that legal obligation, the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9), was created for employers to use for each employee hired. Employers are further required to maintain completed Forms I-9 throughout the respective employee’s employment and thereafter either for three years after the date of hire or for one year after employment is terminated, whichever is later. An employer’s Forms I-9 are subject to inspection by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Office of Special Counsel and the U.S. Department of Labor to ensure compliance with various immigration, anti-discrimination and wage and hour laws.
