Use the Revised Version of Form I-9

Beginning Jan. 22, 2017, employers must only use the revised version Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, dated 11/14/2016, to verify the identity and work eligibility of every new employee hired after Nov. 6, 1986.

Reverification of expiring employment authorization for existing employees must be completed using the revised version, dated 11/14/2016.
