COVID-19: ICE Announces I-9 Procedures Updates

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced that it will extend flexibility for certain Employment Authorization Verification Form I-9 documentation requirements through August 19, 2020.   Originally announced in March, these COVID-19 related temporary changes that allow employers to delay in-person review of employment authorization documents of new employees who will be working remotely have been extended multiple times since then.

ICE’s announcement also puts employers on notice that after July 19th, it will grant no more extensions to employers who received notices of inspection from ICE in March 2020.
