The New Form from I-9 the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is finally here! We can now see the actual changes and how we should adapt onboarding policies to meet the new criteria.

DHS surprised Employers, legal minds, HR associations, and professionals when they moved to modernize employment eligibility verification, by taking additional steps to provide certainty and flexibility for American businesses. Rather than examining an employee’s identity and employment authorization documents in person, employers who participate in E-Verify and are in good standing will have the option to conduct verification electronically and with a live video call interaction. This will be a different flexibility than what the current DHS has provided for Employers.

On May 11, 2023, the President determined that the Covid-19 pandemic was no longer an emergency. As a result, that prompted The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to announce that “Normal Operations are Resumed”. Employers will have 30 days to comply with Form I-9 employment eligibility verification physical document examination requirements when COVID-19 flexibility ended on July 31, 2023.  Employers have until August 30, 2023, to meet the physical review of ID documents conducted remotely during the 3 years of the COVID-19 pandemic.
