    The new 65-page handbook reflects the changes to the new 1/22/2017 revision of Form I-9 and provides:

    • detailed color images of sample verification documents,
    • examples of completed Forms I-9,
    • guidance on electronic retention,
    • and answers to frequently asked questions about proper hiring and verification practices.

    As a reminder, notable changes to the new Form I-9 include, but are not limited to:

    • Section 1 asks for “other last names used” rather than “other names used.”
    • Streamlined certification for certain foreign nationals.
    • The addition of prompts to ensure information is entered correctly.
    • The ability to enter multiple preparers and translators.
    • A dedicated area for including additional information rather than having to add it in the margins.
    • A supplemental page for the preparer/translator.
    • The revised Form I-9 is easier to complete on a computer.
    • The instructions have been separated from the form, in line with other USCIS forms, and include specific instructions for completing each field.
