U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) has withdrawn the June 16, 2008 version of the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, and has reinstated the use of the June 5, 2008 version. The USCIS is now directing employers to use the June 5, 2007 version, which has been updated with a new expiration date of June 30, 2009. Other than the revision date, there are no differences between the two versions.

Employers should commence the use of the June 5, 2007 version of Form I-9 with the June 30, 2009 expiration date as soon as possible, though the USCIS states that employers that used the June 16, 2008 version while it was in effect will not encounter any issues.

Employers are required to use Form I-9 to verify the identity and work eligibility of all new employees (including U.S. citizens) at the time they are hired. The form is not submitted to the government. Instead, employers must retain completed I-9 forms for three years after the employee's date of hire or one year after the date that employment is terminated, whichever is later. Form I-9 may be completed and stored in hard copy or electronically.
