The End of I-9 COVID Flexibility and Other Emerging Immigration Issues

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has announced that the temporary COVID-19 accommodations that allowed for remote Form I-9 inspections will expire on July 31, 2023. Employers will have until August 30, 2023, to conduct physical inspections of original documents and update Form I-9 for employees whose documents were inspected remotely while the temporary policy was in effect. In this webinar, the speakers will discuss remediation in connection with the end of virtual verification and tips for compliant and nondiscriminatory I-9 inspection and verification. The speakers will also provide an update on new types of work authorization and how to memorialize it on the I-9 form, the use of authorized representatives for remote onboarding, and best practices for internal audits.
