The Latest Form I-9 Updates

Status of DHS I-9 Virtual Review & Flexibility Reconciliation

Upon the expiration of the relaxed guidelines on July 31st, 2023, employers will have until August 30th, 2023 to physically review all documents that were virtually inspected during the COVID relaxed viewing guidelines.

What does this mean for you?

  1. Document Reconciliation: Any virtually-reviewed document needs a documented physical inspection by August 30th, 2023. Our End of Virtual Review Guide has you covered on the process and notation.
  2. No More Virtual Review: If you’re utilizing a process that relies on virtual document inspection, you need to implement a physical review process no later than July 31st (even for remote employees).
