Print Friendly, PDF & Email

By Melanie M. Ghaw, Esq. and Rachel H. Khedouri, Esq

On August 1, 2023, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services released a revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Form, available HERE. Although employers may continue using the prior version of the Form I-9 through October 31, 2023, all employers must begin using this new version as of November 1, 2023.

As discussed in our prior eAlert, the updated Form I-9 includes several revisions to the form and instructions, which are intended to simplify the completion process. Among the revisions, the new Form I-9 reduces Sections 1 and 2 to a single-sided sheet; is designed to be fillable on tablets and mobile devices; revises the Lists of Acceptable Documents page to include some acceptable receipts, as well as guidance and links to information on automatic extensions of employment authorization documentation; reduces Form instructions from 15 to 8 pages; and includes a checkbox for use by employers who are enrolled in E-Verify to indicate they examined the identity and employment authorization documents remotely under the new alternative procedure authorized by the Department of Homeland Security.  


If you have any questions on how best to meet your Form I-9 obligations, please reach out to the NFC Attorney with whom you typically work or call us at 973.665.9100.
