U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has published a revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification (edition date 8/1/2023). The new form has been shortened to one page and streamlined to include clearer instructions, guidance on acceptable receipts and the auto-extension of some acceptable documents.
Additionally, employers who are enrolled in E-Verify, will have an optional alternative procedure for document examination, allowing for the remote examination of Form I-9 documents.
Employers may continue to use the older version of the Form I-9 (edition date 10/21/19) through October 31, 2023. Starting Nov. 1, 2023, all employers must use the new Form I-9.
