Employers Must Use Revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) reminds employers that they must use the revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification (Revision 03/08/13)N for all new hires and reverifications. All employers are required to complete and retain a Form I-9 for each employee hired to work in the United States.

The revision date of the new Form I-9 is printed on the lower left corner of the form. Employers should not complete a new Form I-9 for existing employees, however, if a properly completed Form I-9 is already on file.

We have known Mr. Khanna and his firm for many years.  We contact The Law Offices of Rajiv S. Khanna primarily to receive expert advice on H1B petition including transfer. 

Mr. Khanna is very experience counsel and his continued advice to our firm as well as our potential employees is greatly appreciated.  Besides performing well at his duty, we found Mr Khanna and his team including Anna Baker to be a great source of information on H1B and more. Mr Khanna and Ms Baker are always willing to provide professional immigration advice to business owners like us over and above their normal call of duty.  Hence I fully recommend Mr Khanna’s firm to provide immigration services to employers and its potential hires that may require work visa including H1B.  

Ability to Pay Wages when Priority Date is in the Middle of the Year

How shall ability to pay wages be determined when the Priority Date is in the middle of the year?

 

USCIS does not calculate ability to pay wages on a pro-rated basis. USCIS will accept proof to show that petitioners have paid the required wage, as shown on ETA Form 9089, for the relevant periods of employment. Additionally, the USICS will accept other forms of evidence, such as pay stubs, W-2’s, and 1099 forms.

Unless the context shows otherwise, all answers here were provided by Rajiv and were compiled and reported by our editorial team from comments and blog on immigration.com
