DHS and ICE remind employers to manually inspect, by August 30, 2023, all I-9 documents accepted remotely during pandemic

During the pandemic, DHS and ICE permitted employers to inspect documents remotely to comply with work-from-home COVID-19 precautions. Now that the pandemic is expiring, DHS and ICE are reminding that is no longer an option and actual inspection of such records will now be required. Specifically, DHS and ICE announced that employers will “have until Aug. 30, 2023, to perform all required physical examination of identity and employment eligibility documents for those individuals hired on or after March 20, 2020, and who have only received a virtual or remote examination under the flexibilities.”
