Feb 2020 - Important HR Update - New I-9 2020
On January 31, 2020, USCIS published the Form I-9 Federal Register notice announcing a new version of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, that the Office of Management and Budget approved on October 21, 2019.
This new version contains minor changes to the form and its instructions. Employers should begin using this updated form as of January 31, 2020. There is a “grace” period to allow businesses to update their business practices as they relate to the I-9 process. Therefore, employers may continue using the prior version of the form (Rev. 07/17/2017 N) until April 30, 2020. After that date, they can only use the new form with the 10/21/2019 version date. The version date is located in the lower left corner of the form.
