May an employer accept an expired driver's license from an employee to establish his or her identity for Form I-9 purposes?

No. An employer may not accept an expired driver's license at the time of completion of the Form I-9. However, if an employee presents a current driver's license, the fact that it will expire in the future does not prevent an individual from using the driver's license to establish his or her identity.
