Form I-9 Dated 11/14/16 Required as of January 22, 2017

As of January 22, 2017, employers are required use the Form I-9 version dated 11/14/16. The Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 is used to verify the identity and work eligibility of every new employee hired after 11/6/86, or for the reverification of expiring employment authorization (if applicable). All U.S. employers must ensure proper completion of Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States. This includes citizens and noncitizens. Both employees and employers (or authorized representatives of the employer) must complete the form.

On the form, an employee must attest to his or her employment authorization. The employee must also present his or her employer with acceptable documents evidencing identity and employment authorization. The employer must examine the employment eligibility and identity document(s) an employee presents to determine whether the document(s) reasonably appear to be genuine and to relate to the employee and record the document information on the Form I-9. The list of acceptable documents can be found on the last page of the form. Employers must retain Form I-9 for a designated period and make it available for inspection by authorized government officers.
