I-9 Form Revised Again: Effective September 18, 2017

By Marylou V. Fabbo - Skoler, Abbott & Presser, P.C.

September 11, 2017

In November, we alerted you that a new I-9 Form was being released, which was dated November 16, 2016, and became mandatory on January 22nd this year.  Come September 18, 2017, that form will no longer be valid.

On July 17th, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services issued a revised Form I-9. Please click here for the new form. Employers can begin using it now if they want to, but as of September 18th, the form revised in July will be mandatory.  After that date, prior versions of the I-9 will no longer be valid, and employers who use an older form may be subject to fines and penalties.  While most of the changes to the I-9 are minor and will make it easier for the employer and employee to complete the form, with a new form comes new opportunity for error.  Employers should make sure their authorized representatives know how to properly complete this new form before it goes into effect.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call Attorney Marylou Fabbo at (413) 737-4753 or email her at
