ICE Extends Remote I-9 Verification For 60 Days
Written by: Susan L. Swatski, Esq.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently announced that employers with entirely remote workforces as a result of COVID-19 have another 60 days until November 19, 2020 to utilize remote Form I-9 inspection requirements when onboarding new employees. The extension does not apply to businesses where some employees still physically report to a work location. If any employees are physically present at the worksite, in-person physical inspection of Form I-9 documentation must occur.
