NEW I-9 FORMS

New I-9 Forms MUST be Used Starting May 7      Employers Face Financial Penalties for Non-Compliance  Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued a revised Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9.  This form must be used beginning May 7, 2013 or the employer could face large fines The new form is to be used for all new hires on or after May 7, and for re-verifying current employees whose work authorizations are expiring on or after May 7.  (It is not necessary to replace current I-9 forms for employees who do not otherwise need to be re-verified at this time.) The new form contains additional data fields designed to capture foreign passport information (if applicable) as well as the employee’s telephone number and email address (although telephone and email information is optional).  The new form has grown from one page to two pages due in part to these additional fields, but also because the form’s font type has been made larger and its layout has been changed in an effort to improve readability.  The information that employers are required to provide has not changed. Along with the new form, new instructions are available, as is a revised “Handbook for Employers” (Form M-274) which provides additional guidance on completing the I-9 Form. The new I-9 Form and instructions are available at: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-9.pdf The “Handbook for Employers - Guidance for Completing Form I-9” is available at: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/m-274.pdf And a variety of employer and employee information concerning worker verification is available at: http://www.uscis.gov/I-9Central

New EPA Lead Certification Requirments Go Into Effect April 22, 2010

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s new Lead Certification requirements may seem to have little to do with electrical contractors. But, any type of contractor who performs renovation or repair work that disturbs old, lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be “lead-safe” certified by the EPA and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination — or else face a fine of up to $37,500 per day and also risk potential private lawsuits.

New MBE/FBE Requirements for State Construction Projects

Instead of being provided a time period after bidding to allow contractors to meet the MBE/FBE requirements, contractors must now meet the goal on bid day, or demonstrate a good faith effort as to why the goal was not met.  The impact on IDOT projects is still unclear because the law does include an exemption for federally-funded projects and processes.
