Employers Must Start Using New Form I-9 To Verify Employment Eligibility
By January 22, 2017, U.S. employers must start using the new Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification issued November 14, 2016 by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). The prior 03/08/13 edition expired on March 31, 2016, but may still be used until January 22, 2017, when the 11/14/16 edition becomes mandatory. The “Edition Date” is located in the lower left corner of the form. Of course, nothing prevents employers from using the new edition sooner.
