More on Latest Version of Proposed Form I-9
As reported last week, the comment period regarding the newest version of the Proposed
Form I-9 has been set, and will remain open until September 21st. Those who
have yet to examine the new form will want to take note of several changes between
the first proposed version and this latest; some of which include changes in the verbiage
and appearance of the name fields, omission of the word “optional” in several instances
on the form, and a reworking of fields in the attestion section on Section 1.
While several changes have been made that provide much needed clarification, there
is still room for much needed improvement. Language in the instructions is quite
unclear in many instances, such as the use of the terminology “by Thursday” when discussing
the 3 day rule, as well as suggested usage of N/A. There are many more examples,
but it might be easier to read them here. http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=USCIS-2006-0068-0205
This re-opening of the comment period, along with the latest proposed form will obviously
increase push the release date far beyond what was originally anticipated. Unofficial
word from USCIS places the anticipated release date sometime in Q1 of 2013.
Remember, there is still plenty of time for commentary. Visit regulations.gov
and add your opinions today.
