New Form I-9 Announced
The suspense was killing us all, I am sure - the new Form I-9 will be (allegedly) released on August 1, 2023 (cue the celebration)!
Although we cannot see the new form, they did list some of the changes, which will include:
Reduced Section 1 and 2 to a single-sided sheet;
Designed to be fillable on tablets and mobile devices (this is a trick - attend my training, to be announced soon, to see why);
Section 1 Preparer/Translator Certification will now be on a separate supplemental form
New Acceptable Documents to include other receipts and guidance on automatic extensions
Instructions are reduced from 15 to 8 pages (probably because of that Paperwork Reduction Act they keep talking about on all government forms)
A checkbox that allows employers to allow a remote review by DHS (which really makes me shiver)
The form will be dated 8/1/2023; however, the current form may be used through October 31, 2023.
I will announce some workshops in the very near future; however, please reach out to schedule an audit and correction assistance. Remember - getting ahead of this issue is so much less expensive than a visit from the Department of Homeland Security. Once the subpoena arrives, it is already too late.
I look forward to helping you all!
