USCIS To Conduct I-9 Form Study
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is developing a new version of the I-9 employment eligibility verification form. USCIS plans to propose the revised form and invite public comment. The agency is selecting nine employers for a study to determine how much time it takes employers to complete the revised form.
The study will be administered at USCIS offices in Washington, DC, on September 3, 2013; September 5, 2013; or September 6, 2013, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. USCIS announced on August 5, 2013, that interested employers, large and small, were invited to submit a request by August 15, 2013, to volunteer to participate in the study. USCIS said it would randomly selected four large employers and five small employers from all submissions received by the deadline.
USCIS said it will contact the selected employers by August 23, 2013, to schedule an appointment to participate in the study. At the study, the point of contact for the employer will be requested to play the role of an employer completing Section 2 and/or Section 3 of the Form I-9.
