Form I-9 Expiration, What Employers Should Know

The Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification expired at the end of August. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is working on updating the form. The USCIS has posted on their website that until further notice, employers should continue using the I-9 form with revision date 7/17/17 N. They will post a revision as soon as it is made available.

On March 1, 2019, the USCIS proposed extending the current version of the Form I-9 and solicited comments from the general public. After only receiving 21 comments, the USCIS extended the comment deadline to July 5, 2019.

The USCIS has submitted a request with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the expiration date of the Employment Eligibility Verification to be extended without change of currently approved collection for 36 months from the approved date of 10/31/19. You can review the status of the OMB’s approval of the forms on its website, OMB Control Number 1615-0047

Employers should continue to use the Form I-9, revision number 07/17/17N with an August 31, 2019, expiration date until further notice.
