Why it matters: Starting Nov. 1, 2023, all employers must use the new Form I-9 (edition date 08/01/23). Employers can use the new form or the current Form I-9 (edition date 10/21/19) through Oct. 31, 2023.
What’s different: The new form has several revisions to streamline employment verification and reduce the burden on employers and employees. The basic Form I-9 reporting, data input and retention rules remain unchanged. The changes are outlined by the USCIS here.
Go deeper: For guidance on completing the Form I-9, see USCIS’s website and FAQs. As a reminder, upon completion of Form I-9, the dealership must also retain copies of the Form I-9 documents for three years after the date of hire, or one year after the date employment ends, whichever is later.
