DHS Updates Instructions for Employers on Notating Form I-9 for Remote Inspections

July 7, 2020 | United States of America

DHS has provided additional instructions for employers on notating Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification when conducting remote inspections.

Due to COVID-19, DHS is permitting employers who are operating 100% remotely to conduct a remote inspection of employee documents through fax, email, or video. The temporary measures also require employers to follow certain protocols upon reopening, including physically inspecting documents that were originally viewed remotely within three days.

The temporary measures implemented by DHS will expire on July 19, 2020 unless they are further extended.
