U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has published a Request for Public Input seeking information about employers’ experiences with remote document verification in the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification process.
Additional Information: In March 2020, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) introduced temporary flexibilities that allowed employers to review documents virtually, e.g., over video link, fax or email. ICE has extended the flexible measures multiple times, but they are currently scheduled to expire Dec. 31. Under the temporary guidance, employers must physically examine the documents they reviewed remotely when normal operations resume.
USCIS said it is now “seeking to explore alternative options to physical document examination that offer an equivalent or higher level of security for identity and employment eligibility verification purposes.”
