Employers: Are you using the latest Form I-9?

Beginning Jan. 22, 2017, employers are required to use the 11/14/2016 N version of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to verify the identity and work eligibility of every new employee hired after Nov. 6, 1986, or for the reverification of expiring employment authorization of current employees. The form date is found on the lower left hand corner of the form.

Prior versions of the form are no longer valid for use.  Employers who fail to use Form I-9 11/14/2016 N on or after Jan. 22, 2017 may be subject to penalties. Employers should continue to follow existing storage and retention rules for Form I-9.
