Form I-9 Updates (2024)

  • Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, I-9 verification was done on paper and in person. However, in March 2020, a temporary remote I-9 option was implemented to allow new hires to verify their documents virtually. 


  • In July 2023, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced significant changes to the Form I-9 process. Employees hired since March 2020 were required to have their virtually verified documents reinspected by August 30, 2023, creating administrative challenges for businesses and employees. 


  • A new version of the form was introduced, simplifying and streamlining the form to a one-page document. 


  • A permanent remote document verification option, known as the “alternative procedure,” was introduced alongside the new form. 


  • Employers who are registered and in good standing with E-Verify can utilize this alternative procedure to verify documents remotely.
