I-9 Compliance Flexibility Extended Through December 31 by DHS

Due to ongoing COVID-19 precautions, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has once again extended compliance flexibility for Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification) through December 31, 2020. This interim policy allows employers with entirely remote workforces as a result of the pandemic who are hiring new employees remotely to conduct virtual inspections of required documents, then obtain copies of the documents within 3 business days. This flexibility had previously been extended through November 19. For more information, see our earlier post or see the DHS press release.
