DHS Extends Temporary I-9 Changes Until December 31, 2020


DHS is once again extending the flexibility in I-9 requirements for employers operating remotely due to COVID-19. The flexibility allows employers with specifically written policies to review documents provided to establish identity and employment authorization remotely. With this extension these policies will now last from November 19th until December 31, 2020.

As a reminder, we reported on the changes here and explain how to implement a COVID-related policy implementing these I-9 flexibilities: DHS Guidance Update for E-Verify and I-9 Compliance During COVID-19 Pandemic

As a reminder, the policy allows for employers with specifically written policies to virtually inspect documents presented for Form I-9 purposes.
