USCIS Informs Employers to Continue Using Current Form I-9
On August 13th, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, (USCIS), distributed an
email informing employers to continue using the current Form I-9, even beyond the
current expiration date of August 31st. There has been much conjecture over
when the new version of the I-9 might be available and which of the proposed
changes would be incorporated, but as of today there is still nothing concrete
There have been rumblings that there was much more commentary received on the
proposed changes than had been anticipated and that it was taking USCIS longer to
sift through these than had been expected–hence the delay.
The email sent Monday is an informal acknowledgement of that, and lets all of us know
that the status quo will remain in place temporarily. Once the new Form I-9
has been finalized, there will be adequate notice given in order to accommodate necessary
changes in the employment process.
We will keep employers apprised of updates as soon as information becomes available.
