This pandemic is certainly encouraging us to remain flexible. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced another 30-day extension of the flexibilities in rules related to Form I-9 compliance that was granted earlier this year. The expiration date for these accommodations is now September 19. The original announcement from March can be found here.
Employers are reminded that these Form I-9 accommodations only apply to employers and workplaces that are operating 100% remotely in light of COVID-19. Please refer to our previous article outlining this provision here.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) indicated that they will provide updated guidance as needed, and that "employers are required to monitor the DHS and ICE websites for additional updates.”
