New I-9 form

New Form I-9 effective

Did you know, in the middle of responding to the COVID-19 crisis, a new Form I-9 became effective?

On May 1, 2020 a new Form I-9 became effective. The new form is dated 10/21/19 and expires 10/31/22. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) publishes a paper I-9 Form and an electronic, fillable I-9 Form. The new version of the paper form has no changes from the prior version.

The form is used to verify the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. All U.S. employers must properly complete the Form I-9 for each person they hire for employment in the U.S., including both citizens and noncitizens. New hires and employers, or their authorized representatives, must complete the form. Employers must retain the completed forms for a designated period and make them available for inspection when called to do so.

Need the new form?

You can find the various forms at the USCIS website. Clarifications were made to the Handbook for Employers.
