New Form I-9 Published by USCIS

August 4, 2017

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published a new version of the Form I-9 in late July. This is the form used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. The newest installment of the Form I-9 will be mandatory starting September 18, 2017. Use Either Form I-9 Version Until September 18Between now and September 17, employers may use the new version or continue to use the Form I-9 with a revision date of November 14, 2016. However, as of September 18, 2017, employers must use the newest form containing a revision date of “07/17/17 N” (which is found on the lower left hand corner of the form). What Has Changed in the New Form I-9?This new electronic Form I-9 is a smart form that employers can use on their computer to type the information directly into the form before the document is signed by the employee and the employer. To assist those employers who dislike these technological bells and whistles, the USCIS also created a paper version of the new form. Both of these documents can be found below along with the USCIS website dedicated to Form I-9s. USCIS Form I-9 CentralThe website is a great resource for all of things Form I-9, such as Form I-9 instructions and Spanish versions of the Form I-9 and its instructions. However, don’t forget—you cannot use the Spanish version of the Form I-9 unless the employee and employer are in Puerto Rico. Others can use it as a reference—just not the actual official document.Of course, we are always here to help if anyone needs Form I-9 or other assistance.Download the electronic version of Form I-9 (from USCIS website)Download the paper version of Form I-9 (from USCIS website)
