USCIS has announced that it has released a new version of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. Employers can start using this new version immediately or continue using the form with a revision date of 11/14/16 N through September 17, 2017.

On September 18, 2017, employers will be required to use the new form which has a revision date of 07/17/17 N.

Some of the changes to the form are not really relevant (changing the name of a government agency as written on the form). The biggest change involves additions to the list of documents that can be used to prove identity and employment authorization.
