Revised Form I-9 to be Rolled Out in January 2017

The August/September 2016 edition of E-Verify Connection – the Department of Homeland Security’s newsletter for employers – states that on August 25, 2016, the Office of Management and Budget approved a revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.  U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has until November 22, 2016, to publish a revised form.

According to E-Verify Connection, employers may continue using the current version of Form I-9 (Rev. 3/08/2013) until January 21, 2017, at which time they must begin using the latest revision.  After January 21, 2017, all previous versions of Form I-9 will be invalid.  Accordingly, employers will have 60 days to get familiar with the revised Form I-9 before they are required to use it.

If you have any questions about I-9 compliance, please call us.
