The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) authorized temporary flexibility in complying with requirements related to Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, due to COVID-19. Guidance has been provided on how employers with remote employees may obtain, remotely inspect, and retain copies of the identity and employment eligibility documents their employees provide to complete Section 2 of Form I-9. Employers are asked to monitor the DHS and ICE websites for additional updates about when the extensions will be terminated, and normal operations will resume. Employers using e-Verify and choose the remote inspection option should refer to current guidance on the e-Verify website.
