Form I-9 revised

Form used to verify employment eligibility undergoes changes

On March 8, the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) published a revised Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9. Several revisions have been incorporated, including:

  • New data fields, including employee’s foreign passport information, telephone and e-mail address;
  • Clarified instructions; and
  • Revised layout of the form, expanding it from one to two pages.

Ohio University has 60 days to be in full compliance with the new form. Please begin using the new form immediately:


University Human Resources will be updating its online training as soon as possible. In the meantime, please refer to the six pages of instruction included with the new form.
UHR strongly recommend printing the form 2-sided (pages 7-8) to reduce the opportunity for the pages to become separated. Feel free to call Human Resources at 593-1636 if you have questions about the new form.

Please pass this information along to anyone in your unit who may need to use this form for new hires and reverifications.
