Last November, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued a revised version of its Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9. By January 22, 2017, all employers must use only this version, which is dated November 14, 2016. Prior versions of the Form I-9 will be invalid for use after January 22, 2017.
Most of the changes to the Form were intended to simplify its completion via computer and to minimize completion errors. However, the Form can still be printed and completed by hand. A copy of the new Form I-9 can be obtained here.
