Free I-9 Review


Throughout the conference, our immigration attorneys will be available to provide free Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification advice. Following USCIS’s announcement that employers must continue to use the current version of Form I-9 which expired on March 31, 2016 until the new version takes effect, employers should be prepared for key changes to the Form I-9. We expect the new version of Form I-9 to be released very soon.

If you are interested in consulting with one of our immigration attorneys at the conference regarding I-9 form completion and remediation, please feel free to bring redacted copies of your I-9 forms to the conference (please redact the last names and Social Security numbers of the employees). You can also email redacted copies of the forms in advance to with your contact information and we will have printed copies of the forms ready for your real-time consultation with us at the conference.
