The US Immigration and Citizenship Services (USCIS) recently issued a notice on its website and in the Federal Register informing employers and potential foreign workers seeking to enter the United States for employment purposes, of proposed changes to the Form I-9 for Employment Eligibility Verification. The announcement also called for a 30-day grace period for feedback.

The Form I-9, or Employment Eligibility Verification is a form required by federal law to verify the identities and employment authorization of each immigrant worker hired by a US-based employer. It was also designed to protect individuals from being discriminated against, based on their citizenship or country of origin.
