DHS Ends Form I-9 Requirement Flexibility


COVID-19 temporary flexibilities for Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, ended on July 31, 2023.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) also announced that employers must complete in-person physical inspection of identity and employment authorization documents for employees whose documents were inspected remotely (or virtually) during the temporary COVID-19 flexibilities program (from March 20, 2020-July 31, 2023) by August 30, 2023.

Employers need to annotate the Form I-9 for this population. Note, this will take significant efforts to update and/or correct your Form I-9 by the deadline. Failure to complete these actions could result in significant monetary and other penalties.

Additionally, if remote employees’ documents cannot be viewed in person, the employer must be enrolled in E-Verify. Please review and include important content from https://www.uscis.gov/newsroom/alerts/uscis-to-publish-revised-form-i-9.
