USCIS has announced that until further notice, employers should continue using the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification Form, that is currently available on the forms section of its website. This form should continue to be used even after the OMB control number expiration date of August 31, 2012 has passed. USCIS has announced that it will provide updated information about the new version of the Form I-9 as it becomes available.

All U.S. employers must complete and retain a Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States. Employers must complete Form I-9 for all newly-hired employees to verify their identity and authorization to work in the United States. Employers are required to examine the employment eligibility and identity documents an employee presents to determine whether the documents reasonably appear to be genuine and relate to the individual, and record the document information on the Form I-9. The Form I-9 must be kept by the employer either for three years after the date of hire or for one year after employment is terminated, whichever is later, and must be available for inspection by authorized U.S. Government officials.
