A new version of the Form I-9 is now available and ready for use. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently announced the change with an implementation date of September 18, 2017. 

Since 1986, employers have been required to keep a Form I-9 on file for each employee hired. This form is used to verify employment eligibility and employers must complete and sign Section 2 of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification within 3 business days of the date of hire of their employee.

Starting September 18th, all previous versions of the form will no longer be valid for newly hired employees and employers will be expected to be fully transitioned to the new form, which will not have an expiration date until August 31, 2019.

For current employees, there is no need to update or redo current employee Form I-9s on file if the information is otherwise accurate. Employers only need to ensure the new Form I-9 is used for all new employees moving forward after September 17, 2017.
