The newest version of the Form I-9 is dated 10/21/2019 in the bottom left corner, with the expiration date of 10/31/2022 in the top left. Employers can use either the 07/17/17 or the 10/21/2019 Form I-9 through April 30, 2020. After April 30, 2020, only the 10/21/2019 Form I-9 will be valid to complete. Completing an older version of the Form I-9 is considered a technical error and can result in fines if employers have previously been through an I-9 audit with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Employers are required to complete and maintain a Form I-9 to verify identification and authorization to work in the United States for all employees hired on or after November 6, 1986.
