On August 27, 2009, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that the Office of Management and Budget approved the use of Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 (Rev. 02/02/09) through August 31, 2012. USCIS has amended the form to reflect a new revision date of August 7, 2009.

Employers can either continue to use Form I-9 (Rev. 02/02/09) or use the newly revised Form I-9 (Rev. 08/07/09). Both versions reflect changes made to employment verification documentation requirements outlined in the interim final rule, published Dec. 17, 2008 in the Federal Register. The final rule took effect on April 3, 2009. Most significantly, the final rule precludes the use of expired employment verification documentation and other documents no longer issued by USCIS.
