Form I-9 News: New Form and New Process for Remote Review of Documents

New Form I-9 Will Be Released August 1, 2023

USCIS has announced that they will publish a revised  Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification on August 1, 2023.

The Form has been streamlined as well as updated to support a highly anticipated new process that permits employers enrolled in E-Verify to remotely examine their employee’s identity and employment authorization documents under a DHS-authorized “Alternative Procedure”.

To qualify to use this “Alternative Procedure” employers must:

  • Be enrolled in E-Verify
  • Examine and retain copies of all documents
  • Conduct a live video interaction with the employee
  • Create an E-Verify case if the employee is a new hire

Employers must begin using the new Form I-9 (edition date 8/1/2023) as of November 1, 2023.

The full list of other welcome updates to the Form I-9 can be found here.
