The new I-9 and E-Verify process is a streamlined and modernized approach to verifying the employment eligibility of new hires. It includes changes to the Form I-9 itself, as well as new flexibilities for employers enrolled in E-Verify.

The new I-9 and E-Verify process is a significant change for employers, but it is a change that is worth making. By implementing the new process, employers can reduce their risk of compliance violations, increase efficiency, and improve accuracy.

In addition to implementing the new I-9 and E-Verify process, there are a number of other things that employers can do to improve their vetting practices, such as developing a comprehensive vetting policy, using a variety of vetting methods, and training employees on vetting procedures.

By following these tips, employers can help to ensure that they are hiring only authorized workers and protecting their businesses from the risks associated with hiring unauthorized workers.

  • A new section for employers to record any discrepancies they find on the employee’s Form I-9 and how they resolved those discrepancies.
