On March 8, 2013, the government released a revised Employment and Eligibility Verification Form I-9 which employers must use effective immediately.  To obtain the new form you can use this link  This link provides the new form and instructions on appropriate verification documentation and how to complete the document.

The I-9 form is required for ALL full- or part-time employees who work even one (1) day for the company, this includes rehires and expatriates returning to the US for training.

It is recommended that I-9 forms be kept in a separate file from the employee files.  They must be retained up to 3 years after an employee’s date of hire or one year after he or she has left the company, whichever is later.
