Extension of COVID Flexibility for I-9s

Updated: Aug 1, 2022

The Department of Homeland Security has announced an extension their flexibility on 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 December 31st until April 30, 2022.

We have reported on the changes presented and explain how to instill a COVID-related policy by 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. If your company still needs to set up your policy or wants to learn more about it, you can access our FREE video discussion on these policy changes.
