The current Form I-9 expired on March 31, 2016. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has said employers should continue using the expired form for employment eligibility verification until further notice.
Employers must complete Form I-9 for all newly hired employees to verify their identity and authorization to work in the U.S. Visit I-9 Central for more information.
USCIS has opened a comment period on proposed revisions, which include making Form I-9 a smart form, complete with drop-down menus, hover text and embedded instructions for completing each field. The smart form will also generate a QR code once the form is printed to streamline the audit process. The comment period will close on April 27.
