A proposed rule that would allow the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to provide optional alternatives to physical document examination in the Form I-9 process has cleared White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) review.
BAL Analysis: DHS said that the proposed rule would “reduce burdens on employers and employees while maintaining the integrity of the employment verification process.” U.S. employers and business coalitions, including BAL, have 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.
