Construction companies and all others were required to implement the form from the Internal Revenue Service as of Nov. 1.

Employers are required to use the latest version of Form I-9 beginning today.

The new form from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has been available for use since August but becomes mandatory for all employers as of Nov. 1.

The new I-9 does not make any new changes to employer or employee obligations involved in the verification of work authorization. Cosmetic changes include the reduction of Sections 1 and 2 to a single page, slight revisions to the Lists of Acceptable Documents, and a new box that eligible employers must check if the employee's documents were examined remotely under the newly authorized alternative procedure for qualified E-Verify employers.
