The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services released a new I-9 Form on July 17, 2017, to replace the I-9 Form that was last revised and issued in November 2016.
The I-9 is an Employment Eligibility Verification form that all U.S. employers must use to verify the identity and authorization of individuals hired to work in the United States. Employers are required to complete an I-9 for each individual they hire to work in the U.S., regardless of whether the person is a citizen of the United States.
The new form may be used immediately. The prior I-9 also may be used until September 17, 2017, but as of September 18, 2017, employers must use the new form.
