New Form I-9 is designed to minimize user error.
The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 established an employment eligibility verification requirement utilizing the Form I-9 to collect data on new hires. The Act also established an anti-discrimination provision designed to keep employers from discriminating against people because of their citizenship, immigration status or national origin (having a foreign accent, not looking “American”) and to keep employers from committing “document abuse” by requiring more or different documents to prove work eligibility. The basics of the Form I-9 remain the same but the new Form I-9 is designed to minimize user error, particularly when the form is completed electronically.
