The new I-9 form features a few revisions, including:

  • The Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices was updated to Immigrant and Employee Rights Section
  • The phrase, “the end of the first day of employment,” was updated to read “the first day of employment”
  • Form FS-240 (Consular Report of Birth Abroad) was added to List C and is available on the drop-down menu in Sections 2 and 3
  • All certifications of report of birth, including Form FS-545, Form DS-1350, and Form FS-240, have been combined into selection C #2 in List C
