Follow Us: Small Business Tip of the Day: Hiring in the U.S.


The U.S. Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) has revised the work eligibility form I-9 required when businesses hire new employees and made it available to employers as of May 7, 2013. To make sure you’re using the correct form, look for a 3/31/2016 expiration date. You do not need to fill out an I9 for any temporary workers, independent contractors or those employees living outside of the U.S. In addition to form I-9, you can also register for the E-Verify system. If you haven’t used the E-Verify system because you feel it’s too complicated, a recent study might change your mind. The National Restaurant Association and ImmigrationWorks USA report that nearly 80 percent of restaurant owners surveyed found the E-Verify system yielded 100 percent accurate results for them.
