New I-9 Form Must Be Used As Of September 18, 2017

Beginning September 18, 2017, “employers must use the revised Form I-9 with the revision date ‘7/17/17’ to verify the identity and work eligibility of every new hire”. Employers should note that both the deadline and process for completing the form have not changed.

The new Form I-9 version is very similar to the prior edition. It has updated the name of the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices to its new name, Immigrant and Employee Rights Section, and it has removed “the end of” from the phrase “the first day of employment.” USCIS also revised the List C documents section, specifically related to the Consular Report of Birth Abroad and the Report of Birth issued by the Department of State. The process of completing the I-9 remains the same, as does the deadline to complete an I-9.
