  New Form I-9:  Key Changes HR Needs to Know
Employers have until Jan. 22, 2017, to get up to speed on using the newest version of the Form I-9, marked 11/14/2016. The version that has been in effect since 2013 (marked 03/08/13) will become obsolete on that date. The new form can be accessed on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website.
Failure to use the new form beginning Jan. 22 will expose organizations to penalties, which were recently nearly doubled.
  The Fair Credit Reporting Act
The Fair Credit Reporting Act protects consumers from unfair practices imposed on them. It is a 108 page document listing regulations that must be followed by consumer reporting agencies. There are many types of consumer reporting agencies including credit bureaus and specialty agencies. Consumer reporting agencies sell information to companies to assist them in making employment decisions.
Know Your Limits
I know we just made it through the holidays and you want to take a break, but there is no rest for the wicked. It's time to start planning for 2017 expenses. The IRS revealed the new limits for HSA, FSA, 401 (k) and other tax deferred accounts.
