The Department of Homeland Security posted the text of a much-anticipated Form I-9 regulation Friday, announcing it would give qualifying employers optional alternatives to in-person document review in some cases.
BAL Analysis: In its announcement Friday, DHS said the changes advance DHS’ “mission of safeguarding the integrity of the employment eligibility verification process, while recognizing the realities of the post-COVID economic recovery in which more Americans are working remotely than ever.” The remote verification option is welcome news for employers, especially because it takes effect Aug. 1 and will be available, in some cases, to employers who must complete follow-up document review for employees hired during the pandemic. Employers are encouraged to continue working closely with BAL on Form I-9 compliance matters.
