On August 27, 2019, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) advised employers to continue using the Form I-9 for Employment Eligibility Verification that was released on July 17, 2017, and to disregard the August 31, 2019, expiration date printed on the form until further notice.
Western Growers will provide updated information about the new version of the Form I-9 as soon as it becomes available from USCIS, but no timetable has been given for the release of a new form. The new form will be available at www.uscis.gov/i-9.
Employers must complete and maintain the Form I-9 for all newly-hired employees to verify their identity and authorization to work in the United States.
