DHS Extends I-9 Compliance Flexibility

Last month, we discussed the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) news release announcing a 30-day extension in I-9 compliance flexibility to July 19, 2020. For more information on the I-9 flexibility, check out our recent blog post highlighting some of the accommodations, available here.

DHS, through US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”), has announced that I-9 compliance flexibility is being extended again, with the expiration date for the accommodations now set to expire on August 19, 2020.

While ICE has granted an extension to the physical presence requirements associated with Form I-9, ICE also announced that “no additional extensions will be granted to employers who were served notices of inspection (“NOIs”) by ICE during the month of March 2020.”

Verified Credentials will continue to monitor DHS announcements regarding I-9 compliance flexibility. For the latest information, be sure to visit I-9 Central. As always, be sure to talk with your legal counsel before taking advantage of the I-9 compliance flexibility rules to make sure you stay compliant.
