Compliance Changes – Employer Verification of Employees

Significant changes are coming for Employers with the USCIS Form I-9 on employment eligibility verification. The USCIS Form I-9 serves as a vital tool for ensuring an employer’s workforce is legally authorized to work in the United States. By diligently completing and maintaining these forms for every employee, an Employer fulfills its legal obligation but also safeguards the business from potential legal penalties.

The following are the upcoming changes:

  • July 31, 2023 – Employers will no longer be permitted to verify Form I-9 documents remotely. Employers who engaged in remote verification of Form I-9 documents will be required to inspect identity and employment eligibility documents again that were initially inspected remotely, which must be completed by August 30, 2023.
  • August 1, 2023 – Certain employers who are enrolled in e-Verify will be permitted to conduct verification of Form I-9 documents electronically and with a live video call interaction.
  • November 1, 2023 – Employers will need to begin using the new revised Form I-9, which will be reduced to a single-sided sheet consisting of only Sections 1 and 2.  The new revised Form I-9  will be available for use on August 1, 2023.

Don't underestimate the significance of complying with the USCIS Form I-9. It safeguards your business from legal troubles. Employers should secure help from experienced employment attorneys to address any questions. The Galdean Law Firm can assist employers on these issues.
