Untangling the New I-9 Form


Filling out I-9 forms is part of the federal immigration law that makes it unlawful for employers to knowingly hire or continue to employ individuals who are not legally authorized to work in the United States.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has stiffened enforcement of I-9 procedure compliance in recent years. This enforcement will be stepped up when the new I-9 form goes into effect May 8.

The Alabama Cooperative Extension System; law firm Constangy, Brooks and Smith; and the National Federation of Independent Businesses are offering the training, “Untangling the New Form I-9,” available as a series of online videos.
