New I-9 Form in 2023

We have been waiting with bated breath for the New I-9 Form to be created and shared with us by 2022. If history is any indicator of the future, the last time in 2020 when there were changes in the proposed I-9 form DHS extended the use of the expired 8/31/20 I-9 form until after the expiration date. Moreover, the previously expired I-9 form was allowed to be used after January 2021 until the new I-9 Form was launched and effective in April 2021.

When you add the DHS extension of the remote I-9 option until July 31, 2023, Employers and professionals are now more than ever confused about the entire I-9 Form process. Although the extension of the Remote I-9 process may help with the on-boarding process but will make completing the I-9 document still complex.

The plan to streamline the I-9 form and make it less cumbersome includes the following proposed changes:

-Compressing Sections 1 and 2 from two pages to one page to reduce paper use.
-Moving Section 3 to a separate Reverification and Re-hire Supplement, making it a stand-alone section, which only is accessed if needed.
-Updating the List of Acceptable Documents to include a link to List C documents (on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website) issued by DHS. Some List C documents were unlisted, so this will be a helpful resource.
-Reducing and simplifying the form's instructions from 15 pages to 7 pages.
-Removing electronic PDF enhancements to ensure that the form can be completed on all electronic devices. "Problems that some users may have had due to software issues may be reduced.
-Employers must provide written documentation of their remote onboarding and telework policy for each covered employee.

Although the I-9 form is a 2-page document, there is a 15-page instruction page and over 70 pages in a manual to complete the form. Join us on Clatid to learn about the latest changes in Form I-9. You will receive a FREE customized compliance tool to help you stay compliant.
