The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) has released a new I-9 Form.
Changes to the I-9 Form
Effective November 1, 2023, all employers must use the new I-9 Form (here).
Key changes to the I-9 Form include:
- The form may now be completed electronically on tablets and mobile devices;
- A checkbox allowing eligible employers to indicate that they examined the I-9 Form documentation remotely under a DHS-authorized alternative procedure rather than via physical examination. (Note: This applies to only certain employers—namely those enrolled in for E-Verify)
- Revises the Lists of Acceptable Documents page to include guidance on employment authorization extensions; and
- Reduces the form’s instructions from 15 pages to 8 pages.
