Employment Immigration: New Form I-9 Issued

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has published the long awaited new Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. The prior form expired on March 31, 2016. The Immigration and Nationality Act requires that employers complete a Form I-9 for all new hires after November 6, 1986, to verify employment authorization.

The new form, released on November 14, 2016, with a revision date of 11/14/2016, must be used by January 22, 2017. Until then, the prior form remains acceptable.

The new form, which has many of the same features as the prior version, contains the following updates:

  • The preparer and translator section is slightly different

  • Each form has a unique QR code

  • The instructions are separate from the form

  • The new electronic version features new drop down menus and added security
