The Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Jan. 11 released a revised “Handbook for Employers,” or M-274, to help employers understand the Form I-9 process.
All U.S. employers are required to complete a Form I-9 to verify the employment eligibility of each new hire. The updated instruction manual is a “guide for employers in the Form I-9 process” and has been updated with new information about regulations regarding electronic storage and retention of I-9 forms and how to process an employee with complicated immigration status, USCIS said.
The manual was last updated in July 2009, USCIS said.
The updated handbook, with a revision date of Jan. 5, includes new visual aids for completing the Form I-9, examples of new USCIS documents, expanded guidance on the processing of employees in H-1B or H-2A status, and expanded guidance on extensions of stay for employees with temporary employment authorization.
In addition, the manual now includes information for employers in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands who must verify their employees' work authorization on Form I-9 CNMI, USCIS said.
