New Version of Form I-9 Released

On July 17, 2017, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released the latest version of Form I-9 — the form used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United Sates. Employers will be able to use this revised version or continue using Form I-9 with a revision date of 11/14/16 N through September 17, 2017. However, on September 18, 2017, employers must only use the revised form with a revision date of 07/17/17 N. Employers must continue following existing storage and retention rules for any previously completed Form I-9.

The USCIS also released an updated version of the Form I-9 Handbook for Employers.  Among other things, the updated handbook provides information and answers on the following topics:

  • Completing Form I-9;
  • Retaining Form I-9;
  • Unlawful discrimination and penalties for prohibited practices; and
  • Acceptable documents for verifying employment authorization and identity.
