Employers Should Begin Using New Federal I-9 Forms
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has published a new version of Form I-9, the Employment Eligibility Verification Form that must be completed by newly hired employees. This new form, which is available on the USCIS website and bears the notation “Rev 10/21/2019,” reflects only minor changes from the prior version. Employers should begin using it immediately, although using the prior version is also permissible through April 30, 2020. The change does not require any action regarding existing employees.
