U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has published a required change in the Employment Eligibility Verification Form (I-9) in the Federal Register. According to the notice, employers must phase out the previous version of the form and begin using the revised form.

USCIS announced the availability of the revised version of Form I-9 — with “Rev. 06/05/07 N” printed on the lower right corner of the form — which now is the only version valid for use. Use of any other version after Dec. 27 will result in penalties. All employers are required to complete a Form I-9 for each employee hired in the United States.

Both the revised form and the “Handbook for Employers, Instructions for Completing the Form I-9” are available online at To order forms, call USCIS at 800-870-3676. For forms and information on immigration laws, regulations and procedures, call the National Customer Service Center at 800-375-5283.
