New Form I-9 Required Starting November 1st
Beginning November 1, 2023, all employers must use the revised Form I-9 (08/01/2023 edition) that was released this year. The new streamlined and shortened Form I-9 was effective August 1, 2023, but employers were permitted to use both the former (10/21/2019 edition) and new (08/01/2023 edition) Forms I-9 up through October 31, 2023.
Now, employers should stop using any prior Forms I-9 by November 1, 2023 and switch to the new form, for both new hires and reverifications. Employers who fail to do so may be subject to fines.

As a reminder, eligible E-Verify employers may also remotely examine employee identity and employment authorization documents using a new remote procedure. Read more about this remote eligibility verification process in Baird Holm’s update here.
