New ‘Smart’ Form I-9 Compliance: Understanding Changes to the Employment Verification and Recordkeeping Process
Live Rebroadcast (Live Q&A): Tuesday, April 25, 2017
1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific
Questions continue to pour in on what’s changed—and what’s stayed the same—with the new “Smart” Form I-9 in editable PDF form:
- Have the substantive requirements for completion changed at all?
- How do you correct mistakes made on past versions of the form?
- What documentation can you request from your workers?
- What do you do if you suspect that presented verification documents are invalid?
- What are the key differences between the old Form I-9 version and the new?
- Can you review documents via Skype or email for remote hires?
“Smarter” doesn’t always mean simpler. There’s still plenty of guesswork involved for employers, so don’t gamble on getting compliance right when it comes to completing—and correcting—your I-9 forms.
