USCIS Delays Implementation of New I-9 Form

On January 30, 2009, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that it has delayed, until April 3, 2009, the implementation of a rule that would require that all documents presented during the employment verification process be unexpired and also reduce the list of documents employers may accept when confirming work authorization status for employment applicants or existing employees, as required by law.
