Update on Form I-9 Changes

Immigration Services (USCIS) proposed changes to the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, and the initial comment period for the proposal closed in January.

On March 28, USCIS published a notice in the federal register, opening the comment period up again for an additional 30 days

Submit any comment by April 27, 2016.

  • Go to regulations.gov and enter 2016-06883 in the search box.
  • Sort the available entries by Posted (Newer-Older).
  • Click the “Comment Now!” button to make a comment, or open the docket folder to view the supporting documents, which include the proposed form and instructions.

As reported in March, employers must continue to use the current version of Form I-9 until the Office of Management and Budget approves the proposed version and USCIS posts it on I-9 Central — even though this version has an expiration date of 3/31/2016.
