USCIS Releases New I-9 Form

November 21, 2016

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has released a new version of the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. Employers should now start using the new 11/14/2016 version, which will become mandatory on January 22, 2017. Until then, employers may use the 03/08/2013 version. By January 22, 2017, employers must use the new Form I-9. The new version does not change the substantive questions or the list of acceptable identity and work authorization documents.

The new form can be downloaded here.

Employers should also keep in mind that some states, such as Tennessee, have enacted legislation requiring the use of E-Verify for certain employers.
