New I-9 Form - Your Employee's I-9 Process may have been affected

Amy -

                                                                                   Latest Update
USCIS recently released a new Form I-9, and all employers are required to start using the new version by January 22. PeopleMatter is committed to ensuring your compliance and will be making all necessary updates to I-9 workflows in HIRE before this deadline, with a target go-live date of Friday, Jan. 13.
Please select the link below for some awesome information on exactly what is changing in the new Form I-9!
                                                                              VERY IMPORTANT!!
Below are the different scenarios that would affect which form is completed during the onboarding process

Scenario 1: Employee is invited to complete Onboarding prior to Form I-9 updates, but never logs in.

Employees will be given the new Form I-9 to complete during Onboarding.


Scenario 2: Employee begins Onboarding prior to Form I-9 updates but does not complete Onboarding.

When employees log back in after the Form I-9 updates, any information they completed on the Form I-9 will be erased, and they will need to start the Form I-9 over again in the new format.

Scenario 3: Prior to the Form I-9 updates, the employee completed Onboarding including Section 1 of the Form I-9; however, the manager did not complete Section 2.

When the updates to Form I-9 are released, the system will clear out Section 1 of the I-9 and send it back to the employee for corrections. The employee will need to log back into their Workfile and complete Section 1 of the newly updated I-9.

Scenario 4: It is time for re-verification and a task displays on the manager's I-9 Dashboard. The original I-9 was completed a year ago and, thus, is the old Form I-9.

All completed fields from the old Form I-9 will remain intact for historical reference. Managers will be asked to complete Section 3 of the new form, and the latest version of Section 3 will be appended to the original.

    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved a revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. USCIS must publish a revise form by Nov. 22, 2016. Employers may continue using the current version of Form I-9 with a revision date of 03/08/2013 N until Jan. 21, 2017.

    PeopleMatter will automatically update your account with the new form prior to the deadline. No action required on your part.

    We have already made headway on what we knew were likely to be finalized changes. This week we will analyze the published I-9 and continue development for the January 22nd cut-over date.

    Does the updated I-9 have anything to do with Onboarding Docs disappearing when the hire date is changed on the I-9, but not on the employee record?
