New Form I-9 Takes Effect on September 18, 2017

As of today, September 18, employers must use the new Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, for all new hires. The new form is available on the USCIS website and on most electronic Form I-9 software programs.

USCIS originally released the revised Form I-9 on July 17, 2017, which did not include any changes on the form or supplement itself. The only update is the addition of Consular Report of Birth Abroad (Forms DS-1350, FS-545, or FS-240) on List C of the Acceptable Documents list.

Employers who do not use the new Form I-9 may be subject to financial liabilities in the event of an audit.  The new form can be found here.
