Employment Verification

WASHINGTON (CN) - Employers may no longer accept expired documents to prove a prospective employee's identity, under a new Department of Homeland Security regulation.

Until now, expired U.S. passports, driver's licenses, and identification cards were sufficient to prove identity when showing eligibility to work in the United States on the I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form.

The regulation, which goes into effect Feb. 2, lays out all acceptable documentation.
