I-9 Form Compliance - Flock simplifies the process

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:

  1. Our new hire tasking system, notifies the employee and prompts them to complete section one of the Form I-9.

  2. 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)

  3. 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.
