The New USCIS Form I-9 and Remote Verification Option: What You Need to Know

This webinar was held on .

On August 1, 2023, the USCIS released its long-announced revision of the Form I-9. Federal law requires that every employer who recruits, refers for a fee, or hires an individual for employment in the U.S. must complete Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. This webinar will discuss the new changes in detail, and help you understand what they mean for all employers.

The revised Form I-9 reduces Sections 1 and 2 to a single-sided sheet and is designed to be a fillable form on tablets and mobile devices. It also revised the list of acceptable documents to include some acceptable receipts, as well as provide guidance and links to information on automatic extensions of employment authorization documentation.

Additionally, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a final rule allowing E-Verify employers to remotely examine Form I-9 verification documents. The new form I-9 subsequently has a checkbox to indicate when an employee’s Form I-9 documentation was examined using a DHS-authorized alternative procedure.

In this webinar, you will learn about  Form I-9 requirements, step-by-step instructions on how to complete each section, acceptable documents, retention and storage, and an overview of E-Verify.

Areas covered in this webinar will include:

• New changes and updates to the Form I-9.

• Employer and employee responsibilities when completing Form I-9.

• Proper processing of each section of the new Form I-9 Instructions about many of the fields on the form.

• Revised Lists of Acceptable Documents including acceptable receipts for employment authorization documentation.

• New rules on remote verification for E-Verify users.

• Overview of E-Verify and the benefits of choosing to be a user.

• Tips on how to stay compliant with the employment eligibility verification requirement.
