US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is advising that the current version of Form I-9 should continue to be used by employers despite the August 31, 2012 expiration date specified on the form.  USCIS is in the process of updating the form once again, and presumably the new version will be available in the coming months.

Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, must be used by U.S. employers to verify the identity and employment eligibility of all newly-hired employees.

Please contact Hunton & Williams if you have any questions about Form I-9 or related requirements.
