Date: September 22, 2017

Effective September 18, 2017, all employers must use Form I-9 with a Revision Date of 7/17/2017 for verification of employment authorization of all newly hired employees.  The new form contains minor changes to language on the form, largely renumbers the list of acceptable documents and updates list C documents to include the most current version of a certification or report of birth abroad to the U.S. Department of State.  

Employers who are not already using this form must switch over immediately.  Employers who continue to use the old version of the form may be subject to significant penalties under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.
