New I-9 Form

The federal government created a new I-9 form which employers are required to use for all new employees hired after December 26, 2007. Employers need not have current employees complete the new form unless re-verification is required. Employees are no longer required to provide a Social Security Number unless they are employed by an employer who participates in E-Verify.

The new form adds to List A the most recent version of the Employment Authorization Document (Form I-766). Also, the new form eliminates five documents that employees can present to establish identity and employment eligibility under List A. Employers may no longer accept the following five documents:

  • Certificate of U.S. Citizenship (Form N-560 or N-561)
  • Certificate of Naturalization (Form N-550 or N-570)
  • Alien Registration Receipt Card (I-151)
  • Unexpired Reentry Permit (Form I-327)
  • Unexpired Refugee Travel Document (Form I-571)

English and Spanish versions of the new I-9 form can be viewed and printed at http://www.uscis.gov/i-9

New Minimum Wage:
Effective January 1, 2008, the new minimum wage in California is $8.00 per hour.
