A final rule that would allow the Department of Homeland Security to provide alternatives to physical document examination in some scenarios in the Form I-9 process is under White House Office of Management and Budget review.
Additional Information: The rule will allow DHS to authorize “alternative document examination procedures in certain circumstances or with respect to certain employers” in hopes of reducing burdens on employers and employees while preserving the integrity of the employment verification process. However, it is not yet clear when DHS will make alternative procedures available or which employers will be eligible to use them. BAL will continue to monitor the progress of the rule and provide updates as information is made available.
