ICE: Extends Remote I-9 Form Verification Another 60 Days

Employers who maintain an entirely remote workforce can continue to proceed with the temporarily eased Form I-9 document inspection requirements (re: new hires), for at least another 60-days (ending November 19, 2020). This policy, introduced by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on March 20, 2020 has now been extended four times.

The extension and subsequent guidance allows qualifying companies to review Section 2 of Form I-9, remotely (via video link, fax or e-mail, etc.) within three business days of the new employee’s start date.
