The current Form I-9 dated 10/21/2019 must be used for all new hires and reverifications after April 30, 2020.

U.S. immigration law requires all employers to complete and maintain an I-9, Employer Verification Eligibility, form for each U.S. employee hired on or after November 6, 1986. An employer must complete the Form I-9 every time it hires any person to perform labor or services in return for wages or other remuneration. To comply with the law, an employer must verify the identity and employment eligibility of each person hired, complete and retain the Form I-9 for each employee, and refrain from discriminating against individuals on the basis of national origin or citizenship.

Employers can download the newest version of the Form I-9 at www.uscis.gov/I-9 .
While the current form indicates an expiration date of 10/31/ 2022, it is important to note that USCIS may update the Form I-9 at any time, either prior to the expiration date  or a number of months following the expiration.  USCIS generally provides employers with addtional time following the release of a new Form I-9 to adjust their business processes.
