“New Form I-9 Required by May 1,” HR Dive

Articles / Publications

In an article published in HR Dive on February 5, Melissa Azallion is quoted regarding the importance of training employees regarding the I-9 process.

On January 31, 2020 U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced the release of a new Form I-9, which employers must begin using by May 1. The revised form clarifies who can act as an authorized employer representative and provides clarifications on acceptable documents. Using outdated forms or not properly reviewing documentation could lead to costly violations for employers.

“Employers need to ensure that the people that are conducting your I-9 process are well-trained,” Melissa Azallion, a partner at Burr & Forman, previously told HR Dive. “It's only a two-page form, but this is a risk area for employers. Conduct training, and maybe even add an immigration compliance policy to your handbook that says, ‘We're committed to this and we take it seriously.’”
