USCIS Releases New Version of Form I-9

Topics: Immigration

Today, US Citizenship & Immigration Services released a new version of Form I-9.  The new form bears a revision date of 10/21/2019.  Prior versions of the I-9 form are not authorized.  Employers have until April 30, 2020 to use the new version of the form.  To avoid unnecessary complications in the event of an ICE audit, employers should destroy blank copies of the old version of the I-9 form and distribute the new form for use immediately.

Employers use Form I-9 to verify their employees’ employment authorization in the United States.  Employers and employees must complete Form I-9, and employees must supply documents establishing their right to work in the United States by the third day of employment.  eVerify is not a substitute for this requirement.  Employers that participate in eVerify must also complete Form I-9.  Although USCIS publishes a Spanish language version of the I-9, the Spanish version is only authorized for use in Puerto Rico.  All other employers must use the English Language version of the form.
