Employers may continue to use the March 8, 2013 version of Form I-9 through January 21, 2017, USCIS has announced. A new edition of the form is expected later this month and will become mandatory on January 22, 2017.
The current version of the I-9 employment eligibility verification form will continue to remain in use beyond its March 31, 2016 expiration date, USCIS has announced. Employers may continue to use this form-which bears an edition date of March 8, 2013-through January 21, 2017.
USCIS is expected to issue a revised "smart" PDF version of Form I-9,
with drop-down menus and detailed instructions embedded in hover text, by
November 22, 2016. Employers will be required to use the revised form beginning
January 22, 2017.
