OMB Extends Approval of Form I-9
On August 27, 2009, United States Citizenship and Immigration
Services (USCIS) announced that the Office of Management and Budget
(OMB) extended its approval of Form I-9 Employment Eligibility
Verification to August 31, 2012. The revision date on the latest version
of the form now reads August 7, 2009, although employers may continue to
use the February 2, 2009 version. The latest version of Form I-9 can be
found on the USCIS website.
Pursuant to the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA),
employers are required to complete a valid version of the I-9 form for
all employees hired after November 6, 1986 to document their
authorization to legally work in the United States.
