The USCIS recently announced that employers should continue using the Form I-9 currently available on the USCIS website until further notice. Although this form indicates under the current Office of Management and Budget ("OMB") Control Number that it expires on August 31, 2012, the USCIS indicated that this form is not outdated as of this date. Instead, the USCIS said that the current form is still valid and that the USCIS will provide updated information about the new version of the form when it becomes available. The USCIS recently extended the comment period for the new form until September 21, 2012. After the comment period ends, the USCIS may then take time to further modify the new form to incorporate commenters' suggestions and recommendations into the formatting of the new form.
