Updated Form I-9 Now In Effect

As of November 1, 2023, all employers should be using the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services’ (USCIS) newly revised and updated Form I-9.

As discussed here, the USCIS revised and updated its Form I-9 in August 2023. A grace period for use of the old Form was extended through October 31, 2023. However, starting November 1, 2023, all employers must have switched to the new Form I-9 or risk penalties for non-compliance.

To confirm use of the latest form, employers should look for the August 1, 2023 edition date on the bottom of the page and an expiration date of July 31, 2026, at the top.

Key Takeaways:

  • Immediately integrate the new Form I-9 into all recruiting efforts.
  • Ensure all those in your organization who participate in recruiting efforts are trained on the updated Form and its requirements.
  • Schedule periodic Form I-9 audits to ensure proper processing and to address/correct processing errors or misunderstandings.
