Form I-9 Updates
New Changes on Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9
All U.S. employers must complete and retain a Form I-9for each individual hired for employment in the U.S., including citizens and noncitizens. You may have noticed, however, that the version in use reflects an expiration date of March 31, 2016.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)is in the process of refining Form I-9 by the changes originally published November 24, 2015 in the Federal Register. The new form will be downloadable from the USCIS website for use on a company computer.
Until USCIS completes that final new form,the Office of Management and Budget approves it, and USCIS posts it online, employers should continue to use the existing version of Form I-9, available on USCIS's online I-9 resource center.
