New I-9 Forms for 2020

February 15, 2020   |   by Editor

The USCIS released the new I-9 form that is going to be used from 10/21/2019 and beyond till further notice. The new I-9 form must be used by newly hired employees and those who were hired at work before the above date don’t necessarily need to file a new I-9.

However, if an employee was hired after January 1st, he or she doesn’t need to file the new I-9. The new I-9 form must be filed by newly hired employees and employers after January 31st, 2020. So if you, as an employee submit the previously issued I-9 before January 31st, this year, you don’t need to submit a new I-9.

New I-9 Form Instructions

Since not much has changed with the form, our instructions page is still relevant. So you can read it for further details. There are also documents that you need to establish both identity and work authorization. Your driver’s license or Citizen ID card simply won’t cut the job.

But there are still documents that can establish both the identity and the employment authorization. The following documents can be presented with your I-9 to establish both.

  • U.S. Passport Book or U.S. Passport Card
  • Permanent Resident Card (Greencard)
  • Foreign Passport that includes I-551 stamp
  • Federal States of Micronesia Passport or Republic of Marshall Islands Passport with Form I-94 or I-94A.

As long as you have either one of these documents, you won’t have to present anything else along with your I-9. For more information on both documents and the form itself, visit our source.
