The 6/5/07 revision of Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification) has been restored as the correct version of the form to use.  This revision reverses the USCIS announcement on June 16, 2008 of a new Form I-9 version, dated 6/16/08, to reflect a one year extension of the OMB control number.   The correct “restored” form may be found at the following link:

The I-9 is used to verify that all employees hired after November 6, 1986, are authorized to work in the United States.  Every employer must complete the I-9 at the time of hire of a new employee and must retain the I-9 on file, available for inspection by US government officials.  In order to avoid claims of discrimination based upon any bias that may be revealed by the I-9, many employers choose to segregate the I-9 form files from the employee’s regular employment file such that they are not available to those supervising the employee.
