Labor Alert
July 13, 2017
Additional Form I-9 "List C"
Document Added

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced in Federal Register/Vol 82, No. 131/July 11, 2017 that it is delaying the proposed International Entrepreneur Rule to March 14, 2018 except for one amendment which will add a form to the I-9.

DHS is adding the "Department of State Consular Report of Birth Abroad (Form FS-240) to the "List C" acceptable documents for Form I-9 verification purposes, effective July 17, 2017.

Example of a "Certification of Birth Abroad" of a citizen of the United States:

The DHS - USCIS has not yet released the revised List of Acceptable Documents which will include the Certification of Birth Abroad as a "List C" document. As soon as that is available, it will be posted on the wafla website under the "Members only" tab - employer resources page.

International Entrepreneur Rule
The DHS will be proposing to rescind the final rule and may ultimately eliminate the program. The originally proposed International Entrepreneur Rule would allow applicants who provide a significant public benefit to the United States by a significant capital investment from U.S. investors with established records of successful investments a parole visa of up to 30 months to oversee and grow his or her start-up entity in the United States.
