Denver Staffing Agency – Employers Should Continue to Use Current Form I-9
Until further notice, employers should continue using the Form I-9 currently available on the forms section of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website (uscis.gov). This form should continue to be used even after the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number expiration date of August 31, 2012 has passed. USCIS will provide updated information about the new version of the Form I-9 as it becomes available. Although it had been announced previously that a form change would take place in August 2012, the USCIS will continue to use the current Form I-9. To obtain a copy of the current Form I-9 or to subscribe and receive Form I-9 updates, visit the USCIS website’s I-9 Central section.
When and Why was the Form I9 Introduced?
The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), was enacted November 6, 1986.The IRCA introduced the Form I-9 to ensure that all employees present documentary proof of their legal eligibility to accept employment in the United States. J. Kent Staffing has verified employment eligibility using the Form I-9 since that date.
E-Verify, a Companion to Form I-9
Effective February 17, 2012, all J. Kent temporary staff members assigned to our Denver client companies are processed through E-Verify, a companion to Form I-9.
What is E-Verify?
E-Verify is an Internet-based system that compares information from an employee's Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to data from U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records to confirm employment eligibility.
