U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has published a new Form I-9 that will become mandatory Nov. 1.
The agency also provided updated guidance for employers that relied on temporary Form I-9 flexible measures during the COVID-19 pandemic, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced it is considering a remote verification pilot program for employers who are not enrolled in E-Verify.
BAL Analysis: Employers are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the new Form I-9 and should have plans in place to begin using the new version no later than Nov. 1. Employers are also reminded that they must complete follow-up Form I-9 document checks by Aug. 30 for employees whose I-9 documents were reviewed virtually during the pandemic. BAL will continue to follow the development of a possible pilot program for non-E-Verify employers and will provide updates as information becomes available.
