On August 13, USCIS announced that employers should continue using the Form I-9 currently available in the forms section of www.uscis.gov until further notice. The current version of the form should continue to be used even after the OMB control number expiration date of August 31, 2012, has passed. USCIS will provide updated information about the new version of the Form I-9 as it becomes available.

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