Employers must begin using the new Form I-9 by September 18

Monday, September 25, 2017


The new form will have the publication date 07/17/17 N (bottom left) and expiration date 8/31/2019 (top right) on each page. The previous version had a publication date of 11/14/2016 on the bottom left of each page. This version may be used through September 17, 2017; however, the new form is available now. The changes are mostly technical, but employers must always use the most current version. The new form will have one page for each of the three sections. The PDF version will have a fourth page, List of Acceptable Documents. Key requirements have not changed: employers must complete and retain when making new hires and employers may not specify which documents the employee may use to establish authorization and identity. For the current version and more information, go to I-9 Central.

All changes have been included in the revised Handbook for Employers: Guidance for Completing Form I-9. For guidance, see NLBMDA Regulatory Update: New Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification (Updated). Resource materials may be found on the NLBMDA Regulatory Affairs Labor and Employment Webpage. Contact frank@dealer.org with any questions.
