Form I-9 Valid After June 30 Expiration Date

On June 26, 2009, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), a division of the Department of Homeland Security, announced that the current Form I-9 will continue to be valid for use beyond its expiration date of June 30, 2009.

Although the current form has the expiration date printed in its upper, left-hand corner, USCIS is in the process of seeking approval for continued use of the form.   Until then, employers may continue to use the expired form in its current format.  After approval and once a new form has been created with a new expiration date, employers will have the option to use either form, as long as it displays the revision date of February 2, 2009, which is printed in the bottom, right-hand corner of the form.

As of April 3, 2009, all U.S. employers must use the February-revised Form I-9 to verify the employment eligibility of newly hired employees and employees with expiring employment authorizations.  This mandate was originally scheduled for implementation on February 2, 2009, but was delayed in response to a request from the new Administration to allow time for further review.

Additional information and a copy of the Form I-9 can be found on the USCIS Web site.
