New Form I-9 Effective Sept. 18 2017


Beginning Sept. 18, employers must use the revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, with the revision date 07/17/17 N. USCIS released the revised Form I-9 on July 17. Download instructions are available on the Form I-9 page.

What is the I-9?

Employers must have a Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, for every person on their payroll. Form I-9 is used for verifying the identity and employment of individuals hired in the United States. This includes citizens and noncitizens, employees and employers.


On the form, an employee must attest to his or her employment authorization. The employee must present his or her employer with acceptable documents to prove identity. The employer must examine the employee's employment eligibility and identity document(s) to determine whether the documents appear to be genuine to record the information on the Form I-9. The list of acceptable documents can be found on the last page of the form. Employers must retain Form I-9 for a designated period and make it available for inspection by authorized government officers. NOTE: State agencies may use Form I-9. Also, some agricultural recruiters and referrers for a fee may be required to use Form I-9.
