The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) – a government agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States – has announced that employers should continue using the current “Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification” after its expiration date of October 31, 2022, until further notice. The current Form I-9 is available at www.uscis.gov/i-9.
The USCIS also announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will publish a Federal Register notice to announce the new version of the Form I‑9 once it becomes available, according to an Employer Alert from the USCIS. Until then, employers should continue to use the current Form I-9 with an expiration date of October 31, 2022.
The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 requires all employers in the United States to complete a Form I-9 for every employee hired after November 6, 1986. The Form I-9 is used to verify the identity and employment authorization of all newly hired workers in America to help ensure a legal workforce.
