It’s not Deja Vu, the USCIS released another updated version of Form I-9 . The current Form I-9 is valid to continue using until September 17, 2017. As of September 18, 2017 the new Form I-9 is required to be used for new hire confirmation of employment eligibility verification. Prior completed Form I-9’s are NOT required to be recertified. Flock automatically updates the Form I-9 and other supported compliance/tax forms for all of our employers.
Once you initiate a new hire in Flock:
Our new hire tasking system, notifies the employee and prompts them to complete section one of the Form I-9.
Once completed, the HR Admin is notified to review the required documentation and complete section two of the Form I-9. (HR Admin can also reassign Form I-9, section 2 to another Admin if needed)
Flock then maps the data directly to the Form I-9 and stores the completed Form I-9 in the employee’s profile and any relevant expiry dates are tracked along with notification to the HR Administrator and associated employee.
The newest Form I-9 has the following changes:
The Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices has been renamed to be the Immigrant and Employee Rights Section
“The end of” from the phrase “the first day of employment” has been removed for the form.
The Consular Report of Birth Abroad (Form FS-240) has been added to the List C of documents.
The certifications of report of birth issued by the Department of State (Form FS-545, Form DS-1350 and Form FS-240) have been combined into selection C#2 in List C.
All List C documents have been renumbered except the Social Security card.
By using Flock’s HRIS, Benefits & Compliance platform, you can certainly make the complicated I-9 process easier and more efficient from candidate to hire.
