Form I-9 Update

In November of last year, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced proposed changes to the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. The revision process has been lengthy, but, in the next couple of months, we are likely to see revisions to the form.

The Office of Management and Budget approved the final version of the new Form I-9 on August 25, 2016. The USCIS has 90 days to update the form — placing the release of a new edition of the form into late November.

Moreover, employers will be given additional time to comply once the updated form is released.

In the meantime employers should continue using the current version of the Form I-9, which has an expiration date of March 31, 2016. The USCIS has specifically stated that customers can continue using this version until the new edition is released.
