Employers are required to complete a Form I-9 to verify employment eligibility for all employees hired after November 6, 1986. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has issued a new updated Form I-9, which employers may begin using right away. However, employers are also permitted to continue to use the prior form until October 31, 2023, at which time the new form must be used.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services also updated the procedures for verifying remote employees for certain employers. This option is only available to “qualified employers” who are participating in E-Verify and are in good standing. This article from Squire Patton Boggs provides more information about the new procedures and which employers can use them. Additional information about E-Verify can be found at here.
Note that the updated Form I-9 for is for all employees, and the new remote verification process is available only for employers who participate in E-Verify. If you have questions about Form I-9, the new remote verification process or E-Verify, please contact your PBPA attorney.
