DHS Form I-9 and E-Verify Policy Changes Webinar

As employers slowly move back to hiring on-site workers and others remaining remote, the differences in policies can be confusing regarding Form I-9 and E-Verify when bringing on new hires. Onboarding remote employees is already a challenge for employers – add the global pandemic with a mix of in-office and remote hires, and things can get frustrating, confusing, and even difficult for employers to comply with rules and regulations.

In this session, we heard directly from the Department of Homeland Security about all the updates for Form I-9 and E-Verify during the COVID period and the differences in policies between remote and on-premise new hires.

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) National Emergency Declaration, the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced temporary modifications to the Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification process, E-Verify, and enforcement actions.
