So, your Form I-9 is expired, now what?
Employment Law & Regulatory Alert
Eagle-eyed HR pros might have noticed that the most recent Form I-9 includes an expiration date of August 31, 2019. Don’t panic! Until the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) releases a new version, employers can use the current version (dated July 7, 2017).
While DHS has requested that the current version be extended without change, it must update certain administrative elements of the form and make clarifications per public recommendations. A few of the recommended changes include easing restrictions on using an authorized representative to complete Section 2, updates to privacy statements, and general administrative changes to keep the form current.
Key to remember: Despite the expiration date on the most recent Form I-9, employers should keep using it until DHS releases a revised version.
