New Form I-9. Learn the latest changes!


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released an updated version of the Form I-9 on October 21, 2019. Employers will be required to use the new version for Employment Eligibility Verification starting May 1, 2020. Earlier versions of I-9 will not be acceptable after that...

What Employers need to know about the New Version of the Form I-9?

  • Form Number: The new form has a 10/21/2019 version date. Employers can locate the version date on the bottom of the form and instructions.
  • Effective Date: While USCIS is encouraging employers to use the new form immediately, they are allowed additional time to make changes to their business processes and may use the prior version until April 30, 2020. Beginning May 1, the new 10/21/2019 version must be used.
  • Form Changes: The new version contains minor changes to the previous form. Specifically, the Country of Issuance field in Section 1 and the Issuing Authority field (when selecting a foreign passport) in Section 2 have been modified to add Eswatini and Macedonia, North to reflect those countries’ recent name changes. The changes to these fields, however, can only be seen when completing the fillable Form I-9 on a computer.
  • Instruction Updates: The instructions for Form I-9 contain several changes, including an updated USCIS website, DHS Privacy Notice and process for requesting paper versions of Form I-9. In addition, they also clarify who can act as an authorized representative on behalf of an employer and acceptable documents for Form I-9.

The instructions now clarify that an employer may designate “any person” as an authorized representative to complete the form. However, the primary compliance requirements have not changed. The forms still must be completed within the first three days of an employee’s tenure. Employers should review the new instructions thoroughly and ensure employee compliance.
