Employers required to use updated I-9 May 1, 2020

The I-9 form is used to verify the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States, and it is completed as part of the hiring process. All U.S. employers must properly complete 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.

The updated form was released in October 2019, and employers were encouraged to begin use as early as January 2020. However, the mandatory deadline for updating your I-9 form is May 1, 2020. Here are the forms, available for download, from the USCIS.
