The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has sent a proposed rule to update Form I-9 employment eligibility procedures to the White House Office of Management and Budget.
Additional Information: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is working on a separate rule to provide a new version of the Form I-9. The agency proposed a revised form in March and accepted comments on it through May 31. Officials must review the comments before finalizing revisions. The agency may make additional changes in response to comments, and will announce when a new form version will become mandatory.
BAL Analysis: DHS said that the proposal it sent to OMB may “reduce burdens on employers and employees while maintaining the integrity of the employment verification process.” BAL has welcomed the temporary flexibilities and has urged USCIS to make remote verification available permanently. BAL will continue following the proposal through the regulatory process and will provide updates as information becomes available.
