On January 31, 2020, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) released the revised Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification (“Form I-9”). Until the release of the revised form, employers were required to continue to use the previous form, which expired on August 31, 2019. Although the revised Form I-9 is now in effect, USCIS has permitted employers to continue using the prior version of the form until April 30, 2020 in order to provide additional time to make the necessary updates and adjust their business processes. HR Partners recommends using the January 31, 2020 form as early as possible. However, if an employer chooses to utilize the April 30, 2020 extension and continue to use the previous form, employers should consider attaching a memorandum to the expired Form I-9s noting the USCIS directive.
The revisions made to the Form I-9 are as follows:
The revisions to the Form I-9 instructions are as follows:
