The current version of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, expired March 31 at midnight. Until further notice, though, employers should keep using it despite the problematic date printed at the top of its first page.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published a notice on March 28 to tell the public of new proposed changes to the form and to invite comments on them. Only after this 30-day comment period will the Office of Management and Budget begin the process of approving the next version.

The proposed changes, meant to cut down on technical errors, include validations on certain fields to ensure information is entered correctly, extra spaces to enter multiple preparers and translators, drop-down lists and several other new features.

In the meantime, download the current form here—it's valid until further notice from USCIS.

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