Homeland Security Announces Revisions to Form I-9, “Employment Eligibility Verification”

The Department of Homeland Security announced a revised Form I-9, “Employment Eligibility Verification” that is scheduled for publication on August 1, 2023. The revised form: (1) reduces section 1 and 2 to a single sided sheet; (2) is designed to be a fillable form on tablets and mobile devices; (3) moves the section 1 “Preparer/Translator Certification” area to a separate, standalone supplement that employers can provide to employees when necessary; (4) moves section 3 “Reverification and Rehire” to a standalone supplement that employers can print if or when rehire occurs or reverification is required; (5) revised the List of Acceptable documents page to include some acceptable receipts as well as guidance and links to information on automatic extensions of employment authorization documentation; (6) reduces Form instructions from 15 pages to 8 pages; and (7) includes a checkbox allowing employers participating in E-Verify to indicate they examined Form I-9 documentation remotely under a DHS-authorized alternative procedure that we detailed earlier here.
