Long Awaited Form I-9 Release



The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released an updated I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form in March 2013.   Employers are required to complete a Form I-9 to verify the identity and employment authorization of each employee hired in the United States.  Please note, only new hires should be asked to complete a Form I-9.  The new form does not mean employers have to re-verify their entire workforce.  Please review the new Form I-9 as it is significantly longer.

The new form is available at:

FMLA Update



As you may already be aware, the U.S. Department of Labor has recently amended the FMLA regulations.  The new regulations became effective on March 8, 2013.  All covered employers are required to display a poster prepared by the Department of Labor summarizing the major provisions of the FMLA and telling employees how to file a compliant.  The poster must be displayed in a conspicuous place where employees and applicants for employment can view it at all locations.  The DOL has developed a new poster reflecting the recently issues amended FMLA regulations. 

Below is the link for the revised FMLA Labor Poster:
