New Form I-9 and Employer Handbook to be Released

Sources within the Department of Homeland Security ("DHS") indicated yesterday that DHS has decided to move forward with a new Form I-9 and employer handbook as early as the week of November 5, 2007.

Rather than publishing a new regulation, which was the original plan, DHS will proceed now with a Form I-9 based on the 1997/98 regulations. It plans to publish a new regulation, with a newer Form I-9, in 2008.

In the mean time, employers should continue to use either the 1991 or 2005 version of Form I-9.

We will continue to keep you advised as developments warrant, but feel free to contact Greenebaum Doll & McDonald's Labor and Employment Practice Group if you have any questions in the meantime.
