On January 31, 2020, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the issuance of a new version of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification (Rev. 10/21/19). The new version contains minor changes to the Form I-9 and its instructions.
While employers should begin using this updated Form I-9 (Rev. 10/21/19) as of January 31, 2020, to allow time to make necessary updates and adjustments to their processes, employers may continue using the prior version of the Form I-9 (Rev. 07/17/2017 N) until April 30, 2020.
