Industry Update: Form I-9: New Procedure, New Form, New Compliance Risks

August 24, 2023

Access the on-demand webinar here

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently announced that qualified employers may implement new remote verification procedures for reviewing Form I-9 documents for new employees and for reverifications. This change follows the expiration of COVID-19-related flexibilities that permitted employers to remotely verify Form I-9 documents under certain circumstances. The new remote verification procedure only applies to certain employers and it must be implemented in a non-discriminatory manner. Within three business days of an employee’s first day of employment, a qualified employer must examine copies of the employee’s Form I-9 documents, conduct a live video interaction with the employee, document that an alternative procedure was used to verify the Form I-9 documents and create an E-Verify case. 

In this webinar, the presenter will review both the COVID-19 flexibilities and the key features of the new remote verification procedure, highlighting top compliance risk areas such as qualifying to participate in the remote verification procedure, verification requirements for employees onboarded during the COVID-19 public health emergency, and developing a compliant onboarding policy and procedure.
