The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has advised employers to continue using the current version of Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification) after its expiration date on Aug. 31, 2019. The USCIS will provide further information about the new version of Form I-9 as it becomes available.

Background. Form I-9 is used to verify the identity and work authorization of individuals newly hired to work in the U.S. All employers in the U.S. must complete a Form I-9 for each person, citizen or noncitizen, hired to work in the U.S.

Earlier this year, USCIS invited public comments on its proposal to extend the use of the current Form I-9 past its August 31, 2019 expiration date.
