Until further notice, employers may continue to use the current Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, beyond the expiration date of March 31, 2016 stamped on the form, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The agency is working on a new version of Form I-9, and will provide updated information as the new version becomes available. USCIS is currently accepting comments from the public on proposed revisions to the form. Additional information about this process can be found on the agency’s website.

Employers must complete Form I-9 for all newly hired employees to verify their identity and authorization to work in the U.S.
