Employers must utilize the I-9 form to verify the identity and right to work of all new hires, and to re-verify the right to work of existing employees with expiring employment authorization documents. On March 8, 2013, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services adopted a new I-9 Form that must be used by employers beginning May 7, 2013.
You can find the new I-9 form by clicking I-9 FORM and if you would like to view the new instruction booklet that guides employers concerning their obligations to complete and retain the form, click INSTRUCTION BOOKLET. Electronic copies and Spanish versions are available at http://www.uscis.gov.

Those who participated in the Briefing learned about the new law relating to religious dress and grooming, the newly amended DFEH regulations concerning disability discrimination/reasonable accommodation and pregnancy disability, as well as the California Supreme Court’s recent employment discrimination decision in Harris v. City of Santa Monica.
