The current version of Form I-9 is slated to expire on August 31, 2019.
SHRM has outlined three of the following proposed revisions to the form’s instructions:
- “Employers may designate anyone to be an authorized representative to complete Section 2 of the form.”
- “Writing “N/A,” or not applicable, in the identity-document columns is no longer necessary.”
- “The form’s List C documents that establish employment authorization do not include a worker’s Employment Authorization Document (EAD).”
Employers should note that they may continue using the current form “even after the expiration date of the current form until a revised version is available”.
