USCIS has issued a new I-9 form for employers to use when checking that their workers are eligible to work.  The form goes into effect tomorrow, May 7th.   (Here is a link to the form: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=31b3ab0a43b5d010VgnVCM10000048f3d6a1RCRD&vgnextchannel=db029c7755cb9010VgnVCM10000045f3d6a1RCRD).  Most importantly USCIS has made clear that the section 1 of the form, which contains the employee information CANNOT be filled in electronically by a form filling program or HR program.  Use of such programs will render the I-9 insufficient and will not protect the employer.
