The updated Form I-9 that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services released in August will become mandatory on Nov. 1.

Key Points:

  • USCIS published a streamlined and shorter new Form I-9 version on Aug. 1.
  • While employers had the option of using the new version after Aug. 1, it will become mandatory Nov. 1.
  • The changes in the new Form I-9 are summarized here.

BAL Analysis: The new version of the Form I-9 is available on the USCIS website. Human resources personnel should make sure their companies have transitioned to the new version, as it will be the only valid version of the Form I-9 starting Nov. 1.
