On July 17, 2017, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) released a new version of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. USCIS reports that employers can use this revised version immediately or continue using the previous Form I-9 (which references a revision date of November 14, 2016) through September 17. Starting on September 18, employers must use the new version Form I-9 (with a revision date of July 17, 2017). Employers must also continue following existing storage and retention rules for any previously completed Form I-9 as well as for the new form.
