Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Update

The current I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form expires August 31, 2012. The USCIS has not released an updated I-9, so what are employers to do?

The USCIS has released a notice on their website that states that employers are to continue to use the current version of the I-9 form until an updated version has been released. The full statement reads:

“Until further notice, employers should continue using the Form I-9 currently available on the forms section of This form should continue to be used even after the OMB control number expiration date of August 31, 2012 has passed. USCIS will provide updated information about the new version of the Form I-9 as it becomes available.

Employers must complete Form I-9 for all newly-hired employees to verify their identity and authorization to work in the United States.”
